Short Review or Summary of Longer .pdf Review
This book presents a lucidly written and accessible introduction to the clinical applications of current models in neuroscience. Injuries or other challenges that were previously thought to be incurable are now being treated, leveraging some of the cutting-edge research. Unfortunately, the book relies on some flawed premises, makes some very questionable assertions, including the assertion of many parallels between psychoanalysis and neuroscience. The book is entertaining but not a good introduction to the underlying neuroscience.
Topics: Neuroscience
Theory
Case Studies
