Suggested Readings in Clinical Neuroscience
In order to work effectively with patients with brain injury or disease it is important to understand not only neurocognitive and neurobehavioral syndromes, but also other key medical knowledge to do with pathology and the numerous medical procedures/investigations that may be performed. This is no truer than when working as a clinical neuropsychologist, but of course applies to a greater or lesser extent to a range of professional disciplines. This reading list therefore offers a broad coverage of various relevant domains within medicine that one should be acquainted with when working with brain-injured patients. It provides seminal works in neuroanatomy, neurology, neuroscience, pathology, and psychiatry.
