This up-to-date resource offers clinicians a skills-based framework for assessment and treatment of cognitive and emotional problems associated with epilepsy, using current evidence and standardized terminology. Expert coverage reviews widely-used methods for evaluating key aspects of patient functioning (MRI, MEG, electrocortical mapping, the Wada test), and presents guidelines for psychotherapeutic and cognitive remediation strategies in treating comorbid psychiatric conditions. Given the diversity of the patient population, additional chapters spotlight issues specific to subgroups including high- and low-functioning as well as geriatric and pediatric patients. This integrative hands-on approach benefits novice and veteran practitioners across medical and neurological settings seeking guidance on testing, treatment planning, and surgery-related concerns. Topics featured in the Handbook: * Neuropsychological assessment across the lifespan.* Evaluating the epilepsy surgical candidate: methods and procedures.* The Wada test: current perspectives and applications.* Assessing psychiatric and personality disorders in the epilepsy patient.* Evaluation and management of psychogenic non-epileptic attacks.* Neuropsychological assessment with culturally diverse patients. Practical and flexible in its coverage, the Handbook on the Neuropsychology of Epilepsy serves not only neuropsychologists and neurologists but also primary care physicians such as internists, family physicians, and pediatricians.
