Chapters on all the major areas of normal cognitive psychology (perception, memory, language and thinking) are paired with their corresponding disorders of cognition (agnosia, amnesia, aphasia and thought disorder)

Clearly Signposted: chapter topics are clearly separated and easily located

Specially designed textbook features include chapter summaries, annotated further reading and a glossary of key terms

Authors writing at the cutting edge of their subject areas provide the most up-to-date research and scholarship
