From a contemporary perspective, Classic Cases in Neuropsychology, Volume II reviews important and significant cases described in historical and modern literature where brain damage has been sustained. The single case study has always been of central importance to the discipline of neuropsychology. Cognitive neuropsychology and cognitive neurolinguistics search for universal structures in thought processes, and single patients are an important means to that end. The role of the single case study in the historical development of the field and its increasing contribution to contemporary work is therefore recognised as crucial.

This follow-up to the successful Classic Cases in Neuropsychology (1996) brings together more of the important case investigations which have shaped the way we think about the relationships between brain, behaviour and cognition. The book includes cases from the rich history of neuropsychology as well as important contemporary case studies in the fields of memory, language and perception. Some of the cases described are rare, some are seminal in the field, many were the first of their type to be described and gave rise to new theories, and some are still controversial. As in the first volume, each chapter highlights the relevance of the case to the development of neuropsychology and discusses the theoretical implication of the findings.

Classic Cases in Neuropsychology, Volume II will be essential reading for students and researchers alike in the fields of neuropsychology and neuroscience. It will also be of interest to speech and language pathologists, therapists and clinicians in this area.


This book presents significant cases in neuropsychology, some over a century old, which have impacted our understanding of brain damage and its effects. It is a follow-up to the first volume, published in 1996. These books help us understand the relationship between brain functioning and behaviour a little better. Since these are classic cases, our learninanced because important principles were established as mysteries were explored and understood. The purpose is to include classic cases in neuropsychology which have made a significant impact in the scientific community and still have relevance today. These are worthy objectives that the book meets. - Gary B. Kaniuk, Cermak Health Services, in Doody's Review

The book makes an excellent partner to Classic Cases in Neuropsychology … I would recommend both volumes to undergraduates on neuropsychology courses and to colleagues with a practical, intellectual or historical interest in neuropsychology and the discipline's most familiar method of study. - G. Neil Martin, Middlesex University
