This book surveys a wide range of post-stroke emotional and behavioral disorders, integrating the author's unrivalled body of research with clinical and research findings from centers around the world. Psychosocial and neurobiological mechanisms for these disorders are considered, as are their demographic and clinical-pathological correlates, and treatment recommendations. Case histories are used throughout to illustrate the clinical and neurobiological principles, and relevant rating scales are included. At the heart of this volume are the studies of the author and his co-workers, involving more than 700 patients with stroke studied over twenty years. From basic neuroanatomical considerations to psychosocial and prognostic implications, the information in this compendious survey will benefit all health-care professionals who care for patients with stroke, and through them, stroke patients themselves.
