With Macmillan’s superior content delivered by LaunchPad (a first for this title),  Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology continues to keep pace with its dynamic field, just as it has done throughout its nearly four decades of publication. As they have done since the first edition, the authors draw on recent research and their own clinical and lab experience to guide their development of the content, and on their experience in the classroom to help hone the presentation in a way that is both accessible and engaging to students. Coverage includes recent developments in network analysis, neural imaging, and genetic research—particularly in terms of the impact on our understanding and assessment of brain injury and disorders.

And for the first time, the book has its own dedicated version of LaunchPad, an all-in-one solution for online teaching and learning, featuring the complete e-book, interactive student resources,  and assessment tools.
