Principles of Frontal Lobe Function Authors: Donald T. Stuss and Robert T. Knight Publisher: Oxford University Press, New York, 616 pp, 2002 ISBN: 0-19-513497-4

This book provides a comprehensive review of historical and current research on the functions of the frontal lobe. There are 34 chapters. The content covers from birth to old age, from biochemistry and anatomy to rehabilitation, and from normal to disrupted function. Some chapters deal with broad, salient issues such as functional heterogeneity versus homogeneity, while others narrow their focus on specific functions like motor control, language, memory and attention, executive functioning, and emotional and social behavior. The book concludes with chapters on applied clinical research such as frontal lobe pathology in neurological diseases and disorders, stroke, and traumatic brain injury, as well as strategies for neurorehabilitation.

We recommend this book to the field of neuroscience, psychiatry, psychology, neurochemistry, neurology and neurosurgery.
