With Macmillan’s superior content delivered by LaunchPad (a first for this title),  Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology continues to keep pace with its dynamic field, just as it has done throughout its nearly four decades of publication. As they have done since the first edition, the authors draw on recent research and their own clinical and lab experience to guide their development of the content, and on their experience in the classroom to help hone the presentation in a way that is both accessible and engaging to students. Coverage includes recent developments in network analysis, neural imaging, and genetic research- particularly in terms of the impact on our understanding and assessment of brain injury and disorders.

And for the first time, the book has its own dedicated version of LaunchPad, an all-in-one solution for online teaching and learning, featuring the complete e-book, interactive student resources, and assessment tools.

Opening Portraits in each chapter provide a detailed narrative of a specific case or condition relevant to the chapter topic, to give clinical context and motivate the student's reading.

Additional Snapshots within each chapter present emerging areas of research, innovative methods or research techniques, key areas of current study, and informative historical research related to specific discussions within the chapter. These articles allow the student to dig deeper, and get a more intuitive sense for how the body of knowledge around human neuropsychology develops.

Case Studies throughout the text document  injury and impairment, including those drawn from the authors' own clinical experience, to inform the discussion of neurological function and assessment.
