This volume represents a comprehensive overview of the neuropsychology of emotion and the neural mechanisms underlying emotional processing. It draws on recent studies utilizing behavioral paradigms with normal subjects, the brain lesion approach, clinical evaluations of patients with neurological and psychiatric disorders, and neuroimaging techniques. The book opens with an introduction summarizing each chapter and pointing to directions for future research. The first section is on history, the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of emotion, and techniques that have been widely used to examine emotional processing- neuropsychological assessment and neuroimaging. Theoretical perspectives on emotion are offered next, including psychological, social-cognitive, neurobiological, and neuropsychological models. A set of chapters on the neural substrates of emotion deals with a spectrum of emotional conditions: elation and mania, sadness and depression, anxiety and stress, anger and impulsivity, and apathy and flat affect. The book concludes with clinical implications, including a description of emotional deficits in neurological and psychiatric disorders (e.g., stroke, head injury, depression, and schizophrenia). Highlighted in this section is an overview of rehabilitative treatments and brain interventions for emotional processing deficits. This authoritative volume will be an important resource and text for neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, speech-language pathologists, neuroscientists, psychiatrists, neurologists, rehabilitation specialists, and their students and trainees.

Industry Reviews

"This book is a state of the art reference text, with an impressive bibliography. It is enjoyable to read because of the historical perspective provided. It should be part of each personal and hospital library for consultation by neurologists, psychiatrists, and all professionals ivolved in treating patients with emotional deficit."--Annals, The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada March 2001 "This outstanding volume brings together a very impressive group of researchers and should become a valued handbook for any clinician/scientist who struggles to better understand emotions in health and in disease."--Jennifer J. Dunkin, University of California at Los Angeles, for the Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society "The author's stated aim is 'to provide a basic textbook and reference work on emotion for the field of neuropsychology'. This objective has surely been met with a final product that can be apprectiated as multiple levels by novice and experienced alike."--The Journal of Nervous and Mental DiseaseJanuary 2002 Noted in Algoma Sports Medicine & Physical Injuries Clinic "Each chapter of this book is well written and provides precise and complete information on the state of current knowledge in the field of emotions, without omission of the historical perspective...This book is an excellent reference text for anyone who is interested in the neuropsychology of emotion."--European Neurology "...a particularly useful one-stop resource...We recommend this book to anyone interested in emotion, regardless of their stage of training."--Contemporary Psychology
