This full-length translation of Professor Luria's book introduces to the English speaking world a major document in neuropsychology, summarizing Professor Luria's earlier contributions to that area for nearly a third of a century. It is a monumental contribution. Nothing of this scope exists in the Western literature of this field, with the possible exception of Ajuriaguerra and Hecaen's book (in French) on the cerebral cortex. Professor Luria's book thus marks a further and decisive step toward the eventual coalescence of neurology and psychology, a goal to which only a few laboratories in the East and West have been devoted over the last decades. The book is unique in its organization. The first half deals with observations and interpretations concerning the major syndromes of man's left cerebral hemisphere: those grievous distortions of higher functions traditionally described as aphasia, agnosia, and apraxia. There is also a detailed and brilliant analysis of the syndrome of massive frontal-lobe involvement. The entire second half of the book is given over to a painstaking description of Professor Luria's tests, many of them introduced by himself, and set out in such detail that anyone could repeat them and thus verify Professor Luria's interpretations.

Evaluation and Treatment of Neuropsychologically Compromised Children: Understanding Clinical Applications Post Luria and Reitan defines what executive functions are, discusses differences in executive functioning between normative children and those with special education needs, identifies how best to perform neuropsychological assessments of executive function using both qualitative and quantitative measures, and presents the best treatment interventions for improvement. The book makes special note of the contributions of A.R. Luria, from Russia, and Ralph M. Reitan, from the US as the "fathers" of modern neuropsychology to help readers understand current advances in theory and clinical applications relating to executive function.

This important book, by the most distinguished Soviet psychologist of our time, is the product of almost forty years of extensive research aimed at understanding the cerebral basis of human psychological activity. The main part of the book describes what we know today about the individual systems that make up the human brain and about the role of the individual zones of the cerebral hemispheres in the task of providing the necessary conditions for higher forms of mental activity to take place. Finally, Luria analyzes the cerebral organization of perception and action, of attention and memory, or speech and intellectual processes, and attempts to fit the facts obtained by neuropsychological studies of individual brain systems into their appropriate place in the grand design of psychological science.

In his newest book, Norman Holland brings brain science to literary criticism. The Brain of Robert Frost combines psychoanalysis with the revolutionary new findings of brain research and cognitive psychology to model the way we create and respond to literature. Holland draws three central ideas from "the mind's new science": the critical "supercharged" period in infancy when individuality is formed; the binding of emotion to intellect deep in the old brain; the top-down, inside-out, feedback processing of language in the new. Then, using Robert Frost as an example both of a writer and a reader, and comparing Frost's reading of a poem to readings by six professors of literature, Holland builds a new, powerful way of thinking about literary criticism and teaching. - Back cover.

Die in diesem Band enthaltenen Aufsätze beruhen auf Vorträgen, die am 4. Symposium der Herbert-von-Karajan-Stiftung der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Wien am 24. und 25. Mai 1988 gehalten wurden. Sie be leuchten das Thema Mensch und Musik unter verschiedenen natur-und geisteswissenschaftlichen Aspekten und dadurch auch mit verschiedenen Methoden. Die Vielfalt der Betrachtungsweisen zeigt nicht nur, daß na turwissenschaftliche Methoden und Fragestellungen zu einem besonde ren Verständnis der Gründe für die Wirkung von Musik auf den Menschen beitragen können, sondern umgekehrt auch, daß durch Fragen, die von Musikern und Musikologen gestellt werden, neuropsychologische Er kenntnisse zu gewinnen sind, die weit über das Gebiet der Musik hinaus Bedeutung erlangen. In diesem Sinne ist das Symposium auch eine Art Geburtsstätte für neue Ideen, Arbeitsrichtungen und Konzepte, die für die Musikwissenschaften ebenso wie für die Naturwissenschaften nützlich sein können. Das gilt besonders für das Round-table-Gespräch, bei welchem Vertreter verschiedener Disziplinen in einer freundschaftlichen Atmosphäre ihre mannigfaltigen Standpunkte einerseits zu erklären, an dererseits zu verstehen suchen und welches durch die Teilnahme von aus übenden Musikern in enger Verbindung mit der Musikpraxis steht, womit auch die Gefahr gebannt wird, daß sich die Diskussion in esoterische Re gionen verflüchtigen könnte. In dieser Hinsicht möchte ich besonders herzlich Herbert von Karajan danken, der auch diesmal wieder nicht bloß interessierter Zuhörer war, sondern mit seinem großen Erfahrungsschatz wesentlich dazu beigetragen hat, die Grundidee dieser Veranstaltung zu verwirklichen. Mein besonderer Dank gilt auch der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde, insbesondere deren Präsidenten, Herrn Univ. Prof. Dr.

The metabolic disorder phenylketonuria (PKU) is the most common biochemical cause of mental retardation, and affects roughly one in 10,000 children. Bridging basic neuroscience research and clinical studies, this longitudinal study (a) provides evidence that cognitive deficits result from even moderate amino acid imbalances considered acceptable under the standard treatment for PKU, (b) characterizes the nature of those cognitive deficits, and (c) identifies their biological cause. The authors discuss possible steps to correct the problem, and possible implications of the findings for children with other developmental disabilities, such as attention deficit disorder.
