Cognitive and behavioural neurology is increasingly the focus of attention from the neurosciences, both in adults and children.This field combines a number of specialties to ensure that neurological conditions are approached from different standpoints. Appropriate cognitive/behavioural evaluation methods should based upon the known characteristics of neuropathology, molecular genetics and neurophysiology of the disorders.

An exhaustive review of a fast-growing discipline: cognitive and behavioural

This book provides an update on neurocognitive and behavioural deficits observed in developmental neurology:

  • epilepsy,
  • brain malformations,
  • tumours,
  • autistic spectrum disorders,
  • syndromic and non-syndromic intellectual disabilities,
  • cerebral palsy
  • CNS progressive disorders.

It aims to describe cognitive/behavioural phenotypes, define indications for treatment and rehabilitation, and enhance knowledge acquired from clinical studies.

The contents are addressed to child neurologists and psychiatrists, psychologists, paediaricians, behavioural and speech therapists.
