Description - Reflections of a Neuropsychologist by John L. Bradshaw

Reflections of a Neuropsychologist: Brushes with Brains follows the life of an influential neuropsychologist's fascinating and varied career. Unique in its autobiographical approach, it features coverage of research into human evolution, archaeology and neurology.

Beginning with his earliest memories (and implications for memory processes), John L. Bradshaw reflects on his archaeological expeditions preceding his primary career as a physiological psychologist and a behavioural neuroscientist. His influential research covers such rare neurological disorders as Huntington's disease, Friedreich ataxia and Williams syndrome, and more common maladies like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases, stroke, Fragile X, Tourette's syndrome, obsessive compulsive and attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, schizophrenia, autism and depression.

His fascinating personal experiences illustrating scientific discoveries will entertain, enthuse, encourage and inspire, and provide established research scientists and practising clinicians with a unique road map.
