This comprehensive textbook provides an accessible account of the theories that seek to explain the complex relationship between brain and behaviour. Drawing on research findings from the disciplines of neuropsychology, neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience and cognitive neuropsychology, David Andrewes provides contemporary models of neuropsychological processes. The book provides a fresh perspective that takes into account the modern advances of functional neuroimaging and other new research techniques. The emphasis at all times is on bridging the gap between theory and practice.
