Samenvatting

Neurovascular diseases and conditions, and their associated risk factors, represent a significant cause of cognitive disability in the United States and throughout the world. In the USA alone there are 750,000 new strokes each year, representing the number one cause of disability in the country. Hypertension, found in approximately 50 million Americans, has been shown to be associated with alterations of cognitive function, even in the absence of stroke and dementia. Recent studies of neurovascular disease have now revealed that neuropsychological function may be a more sensitive measure of brain integrity than coordination, motor or sensory function and correlates will with functional outcome measures. Neurovascular Neuropsychology focuses on focal and diffuse neurovascular disease in addition to systemic conditions in which cognition and behavior have been uniquely associated with different pathologic states. With an increasing number of patients being treated by healthcare professionals, Neurovascular Neuropsychology will prove to be a strong reference to consult in regards to neuropsychological syndromes.

Recensie(s)

From the reviews: Neurovascular Neuropsychology presents an extremely lucid, state-of-the art, detailed overview of an emerging interdisciplinary specialty area that is rapidly increasing our clinical and theoretical understanding of the role of cerebral circulation in health and disease states. This volume presents a wealth of information that is centrally important to neurologists, psychiatrists, radiologists, physiatrists, and transplant surgeons as well as to clinical and experimental neuropsychologists ... . It should be read by a very wide variety of professionals who have an interest in brain-behavior relationships. (James A. Moses Jr., PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 55 (12), March, 2010) Festa and Lazar's work is a timely effort to continue that effort to broaden and deepen our perspective on vascular disease as related to neuropsychological functioning...written by a remarkably international list of contributors with expertise at many levels in the field of vascular disease... the chapters are clearly and concisely written and provide an excellent, broad-based introduction for each topic... One of the strengths of this text and the presented reviews is that research to date is critically presented, with discussion of the problems in methodology, an awareness of the limited conclusions that are afforded in comparing the results of various studies, and clear directions and recommendations for future research. (Richard C. Delaney , Ph.D. ABPP-CN , Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society, 2010)
