The care of stroke patients has changed dramatically. As well as improvements in the emergency care of the condition, there have been marked advances in our understanding, management and rehabilitation of residual deficits. This book is about the care of stroke patients, focusing on behavioural and cognitive problems. It provides a comprehensive review of the field covering the diagnostic value of these conditions, in the acute and later phases, their requirements in terms of treatment and management and the likelihood and significance of long-term disability. This book will appeal to all clinicians involved in the care of stroke patients, as well as to neuropsychologists, other rehabilitation therapists and research scientists investigating the underlying neuroscience.

Review

'… a very handy reference book for the bedside or brief office examination of the stroke patient. … The Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology of Stroke is an excellent source book. It is likely to be reread many times by its owner; indeed, every time the clinician is requested to see an 'interesting' patient and needs a fast review of the phenomenology, assessment procedures, neuroanatomic implication and appropriate treatment plan for the patient he/she is about to encounter.' Journal of Neurointerventional Surgery
