About this title:

Several tests have been devised to assess the functions subsumed by the frontal lobes of the brain, and are in use worldwide in clinical practice and research. Anatomical localization has revealed that the frontal lobes can be divided into sub-regions with different functional domains. As a result, a number of authors working in the frontal lobe literature have made a case for patients with frontal lobe damage to be considered in their distinct sub-groups, rather than considered together in one unitary group. It is therefore important for clinicians and researchers to be made aware of the functions assessed by individual frontal tests and understand which frontal regions might be impaired in their patient groups, as patients with damage to one of these regions will perform poorly on tasks tapping that region, yet may perform well on tasks tapping the unaffected regions within the frontal lobes.

The Handbook of Frontal Lobe Assessment provides a critical review and appraisal of both the neuro-psychological and experimental tests that have been devised to assess frontal lobe functions. It includes many tests that have not been included in previously published neuropsychological compendia. Throughout, the book discusses the available frontal tests in relation to patient and lesion data, neuro-imaging data and ageing data in order to offer clinicians and researchers the opportunity to choose the best assessment instrument for their purpose.

Key features:

  • Describes distinct regions of the frontal lobes that each test 'taps', allowing clinicians and researchers to select tests that tap different frontal regions, making assessments more focused and less time-consuming
  • Provides a critical review and an appraisal of the tests used in clinical practice to assess all aspects of frontal lobe function, including social and emotional processing related tasks which have not previously been addressed
  • Provides clinicians and researchers with an opportunity to examine exactly what various frontal tests are assessing, and select the best instrument for their purposes

Readership: Clinicians, researchers and lecturers whose specialty is neuroscience, neuropsychology, cognitive ageing and cognitive epidemiology.

Authors: Sarah E MacPherson, Sergio Della Sala, Simon R Cox, Alessandra Girardi, and Matthew H Iveson
