About the Book

This book provides a basis for understanding the impact of medical conditions on the developing brain and offers much practical clinical information. The authors first review normal brain development and then the influences that disrupt it. Specific developmental and genetic disorders are described. They explain the pediatric neuropsychological evaluation, from initial patient contact through assessment, interpretation and report writing. Many examples of how to obtain the best samples of behavior are given. Specific medical problems that affect brain-behavior functions are considered in-depth. These include hydrocephalus, epilepsy, head trauma, cancer, and cardiovascular and renal disease. Each chapter in this section provides essential information that contributes to an understanding of the system and of the impact of the illness of the child's brain function. This book will be of value to neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, rehabilitation specialists and other
professionals directly involved in the care of children with medical conditions that affect brain function.
