Description - The Handbook of Adult Language Disorders by Argye E. Hillis
This handbook provides clinicians and researchers with a comprehensive reference resource on the study of acquired language disorders - or aphasia. The focus is on how the study of acquired language disorders has contributed to our understanding of normal language and its neural substrates, and to the clinical management of language disorders. The handbook is unique in reviewing studies from all of the major disciplines in which aphasia research is conducted - cognitive neuropsychology, linguistics, neurology, neuroimaging, and speech-language pathology - as they apply to each topic of language. For each language domain, e.g. reading, spelling, naming, there is a chapter devoted to recent neuroimaging studies and a chapter devoted to clinical diagnosis and treatment of impairments in that domain. Featuring contributions from leading experts in the field, The Handbook of Adult Language Disorders is a truly integrated and authoritative reference work on aphasia research that will prove invaluable to anyone working in the field.
