A comprehensive two-volume set, the APA Handbook of Neuropsychology provides foundational information on neuropsychology, identifies pressing research questions related to neuropsychological disorders and conditions, offers updates on methods to investigate these issues, and aims to shape the field’s future development.

Volume 1, Neurobehavioral Disorders and Conditions: Accepted Science and Open Questions, aids clinicians and researchers in updating their understanding of disordered brain function and addresses questions regarding neurobehavioral disorders, such as amnesia, and clinical conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease. Taking a lifespan approach, chapters in Volume 1 include a section on accepted neuropsychological science and a section on important issues for future research.

Volume 2, Neuroscience and Neuromethods, focuses on neuroscience, brain imaging methods, and advanced statistical models needed to investigate the questions raised in Volume 1, as well as treatment paradigms to guide future interventions. Chapters aim to stimulate innovative assessment and intervention methods. 

The 73 chapters serve as an invaluable resource for the expanding field of neuropsychology. Clinicians, researchers, students, and scholars can use this handbook to gain a foundational understanding of neuropsychology and to further advance the field themselves. 

Author Biography

Gregory G. Brown, PhD, ABPP-CN, is emeritus professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego School of Medicine. Dr. Brown earned a PhD in psychology from Wayne State University in 1977. He worked as a clinical neuropsychologist at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan for 17 years and at The New York Hospital/Cornell University Medical College for a year. In 1995, he joined the Department of Psychiatry at University of California, San Diego, and the Psychology Department at the VA San Diego Healthcare System. Throughout his career he has taught courses on clinical neuropsychology and mentored trainees. Dr. Brown has 170 papers listed in ResearchGate; his neuropsychological research has been wide-ranging, involving studies of the neuropsychological functioning of patients with neurological or neuromedical disorders and studies of these patients using functional and structural brain imaging. He has a board certification from the American Board of Professional Psychology with a specialty in clinical neuropsychology, and is a fellow of Division 40 of the American Psychological Association (Society for Clinical Neuropsychology).  He was the editor of the APA’s journal Neuropsychology from 2014 to 2019.

Bruce A. Crosson, PhD, ABPP-CN, has published more than 150 refereed journal articles during a career of over 40 years, and mentored 26 faculty, fellows, and graduate students. Most recently, Dr. Crosson’s primary faculty affiliations have included professor of clinical and health psychology at the University of Florida (1989–2012) and professor of neurology and of radiology and imaging sciences at Emory University (2012–2021). He held an honorary professorship in health and rehabilitation sciences at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia for 18 years (2004–2021). Dr. Crosson was the recipient of a Senior Research Career Scientist Award from the VA Rehabilitation Research and Development Service (2009-2021). He is considered one of the world’s leading experts on subcortical functions in language and is also recognized for his expertise in functional neuroimaging. Dr. Crosson has held a diplomate in clinical neuropsychology from the American Board of Professional Psychology since 1986, and he is a fellow of the American Psychological Association. He was one of the organizers of the 1997 Houston Conference on Specialty Education and Training in Clinical Neuropsychology, which has guided the training of clinical neuropsychologists for more than 20 years.

Kathleen (Kathy) Y. Haaland, PhD, ABPP-CN, is a tenured professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center. She is board certified by the American Board of Professional Psychology and the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology (ABPP-CN) where she continues to participate in board certification exams. She has published more than 100 papers and chapters largely focused on the cognitive and neuroanatomical correlates of action in stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and Huntington’s disease.  Her research was continuously funded from 1981 to 2014, and in addition to serving as the director of neuropsychology at the New Mexico VA Healthcare System for many years, she was a VA research career scientist from 2004 to 2014.  She has been recognized locally for her research, is a fellow of the American Psychological Association, and received lifetime career contribution awards from the International Neuropsychological Society and the National Academy of Neuropsychology. She has also served in leadership roles in the International Neuropsychological Society, the APA, and the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology. She was the symposium editor and then editor in chief of the Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society. Since 2017 she has been an associate editor for the neuroscience section of Frontiers for Young Minds.

Tricia Z. King, PhD, is a tenured professor in the Department of Psychology at Georgia State University (GSU). She is a fellow of Division 40 of the American Psychological Association (Society for Clinical Neuropsychology). Dr. King earned her PhD in clinical psychology with a neuropsychology specialization at the University of Florida. Dr. King continues to investigate the interacting biopsychosocial factors that contribute to optimal outcomes following neurodevelopmental disruption. The overarching goal of her work is to contribute to advancements in precision medicine, resulting in greater prognostic abilities and enhanced interventions to mitigate neurotoxicity and enable individuals to thrive. She has published more than 100 peer reviewed papers and chapters. Dr. King is committed to diversifying the trainee pipeline and has enjoyed mentoring and training at the undergraduate and graduate level. She sponsors a chapter of the Association of Students and Trainees at GSU (SCN ANST) and was awarded the GSU Outstanding Undergraduate Mentoring Award.
