Description:

The Oxford Handbook of Functional Brain Imaging in Neuropsychology and Cognitive Neurosciences describes in a readily accessible manner the several functional neuroimaging methods and critically appraises their applications that today account for a large part of the contemporary cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology literature. The complexity and the novelty of these methods often cloud appreciation of the methods’ contributions and future promise.

The Handbook begins with an overview of the basic concepts of functional brain imaging common to all methods, and proceeds with a description of each of them, namely magnetoencephalography (MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), positron emission tomography (PET), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Its second part covers the various research applications of functional neuroimaging on issues like the function of the default mode network; the possibility and the utility of imaging of consciousness; the search for mnemonic traces of concepts; human will and decision-making; motor cognition; language; the mechanisms of affective states and pain; the presurgical mapping of the brain; and others. As such, the volume reviews the methods and their contributions to current research and comments on the degree to which they have enhanced our understanding of the relation between neurophysiological activity and sensory, motor, and cognitive functions. Moreover, it carefully considers realistic contributions of functional neuroimaging to future endeavors in cognitive neuroscience, medicine, and neuropsychology.

User’s Review:

Review “With the rapid advances in neuroimaging affecting clinical practice, this book is a must for any student, resident, or practicing clinician who inevitably will interact with these augmentations to patient care. With chapters written in a concise and clear manner, it takes the reader through thebasics of multiple neuroimaging techniques, explaining their foundation and illustrating clinical and experimental applications. This text goes a long way in helping to maintain up-to-date knowledge in the fields of Neurology, Neuropsychology, Psychiatry, and is most highly recommended for allpractitioners and researchers.” — Linas A. Bieliauskas, PhD, Professor, University of Michigan Health System and Staff Psychologist, VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System”In the past few decades, the emergence of functional imaging has produced new insights into brain mechanisms, but the various techniques and the massive expansion of data makes the field very difficult to assimilate. Dr. Papanicolaou has produced an excellent comprehensive handbook detailingtechniques and the current state of findings across multiple domains. The handbook will be of distinct value to students and established researchers.” — Kimford J. Meador, MD, Department of Neurology & Neurological Sciences. Stanford University School of Medicine”In this book, Andrew Papanicolaou describes in detail the different functional brain imaging techniques and their application to neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience. This book is not merely a list of neuroimaging techniques and of their applications for the consumers of the neuroimagingliterature, but it has the rare and invaluable merit of underlying the limits, the flaws and the misuse of these techniques. Neuroimaging scientists should moderate the tendency to always study new issues and publish what ‘has never been done before.’ The result is that we have an overwhelmingamount of data and models, or pseudo models, and sets of unconnected conjectures when much more fundamental issues remain unresolved. This kind of book was needed and will, hopefully, encourage scientists to reconsider their use of functional brain imaging.” — Gianfranco Dalla Barba, MD, PhD, ,Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale”Cognitive neuropsychologists must welcome this book. Neuroimaging meets cognition in an unprecedentedly honest way. This is not just about taking pictures, but providing them with meaning. Not an easy task and no cheap shortcuts. Papanicolau’s report of current state of the art explores allimplications of theoretically driven neuroimaging, with a critical eye and scholarly attention to detail.” — Carlo Semenza, MD, Professor of Neuropsychology, University of Padova (Italy)”Much like the concept of IQ, the apparent straightforwardness of functional imaging frequently lends itself to oversimplication and mischaracterization of the complex brain networks underlying cognition. Papanicolaou’s Handbook provides critical appraisal of often neglected assumptions underlyingfunctional imaging for inferring brain-behavior relationships and how competing theories and models of complex cognitive behavior influence the meaningfulness of functional imaging “facts.” As such, the Handbook provides a valuable addition to the library of works for serious students interested inunravelling the brain mechanisms giving rise to normal and abnormal cognitive processes.” — David W. Loring, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics and Neuropsychology Program Director (Neurology), Emory University Brain Health Center”[A] masterful, in depth review of different functional and structural imaging modalities. In addition to providing a thorough review of different modalities, including acquisition, processing, and analyses, the handbook also outlines strengths and weaknesses of each modality. Potential solutionsfor potential problems with each application are provided, as well as explanations of different applications. As in his previous texts on neuroimaging, Dr. Papanicolaou brings his personal experience and broad expertise into each chapter, usually supplemented by a major expert with each modality.The combination of neurophysiological and metabolic imaging modalities in a single volume makes this handbook useful as a textbook or as a synthesis of current developments in functional and structural neuroimaging.” — Jack M. Fletcher, PhD, ABPP (ABCN), University of Houston”Since the pioneering studies in Lund and Copenhagen some 50 years ago, a variety of functional brain imaging methods have given numerous new insights into the function of the brain in health and disease. This handbook will provide the reader with upto date methodogical knowledge about the majormodern methods used, including discussions about their pros and cons. A variety of applications of functional brain imaging methods for elucidating connectivity and brain networks involved in memory, language, executive functions, consciousness and emotions are reviewed in a highly competent way.This handbook is a must for neuropsychologists and neuroscientists in search for deeper knowledge about functional brain imaging.” — Jarl Risberg, PhD, Professor emeritus of neuropsychology, University of Lund, Sweden”This book presents a unique synthesis of current brain imaging contributions to neuroscience, skillfully edited by one of the leading authorities in this area. Professor Andrew C. Papanicolaou and his team of experts provide essential guiding principles for functional neuroimaging in bothconceptual and clinical contexts, and set the stage for new trends, offering another outstanding example of the scholarly reviews we have come to expect from the Oxford Handbooks series.” — José León-Carrión, PhD, Chair, Department of Experimental Psychology, Human Neuropsychology Laboratory,University of Seville, Seville, Spain”As practically useful and accurate as this book is in describing neuroimaging methodologies and their respective applications, an even greater purpose is served by the very insightful chapters addressing the more esoteric claims of where neuroimaging can take us in revealing mechanisms underlyingsuch higher brain functions as memory, attention, decision-making, and ‘consciousness.’ These discussions. . . are clearly attributable to Dr. Papanicolaou’s lifelong involvement with cognitive research, electrophysiology, imaging, and classical philosophy. Although he and his co-authors review theaccomplishments of the field and carefully consider realistic neuroimaging contributions to future endeavors in medicine and neuropsychology, Dr. Papanicolaou also continues with a healthy, well-argued, skepticism about the more extravagant claims and expectations of the neuroimaging community.” –Georg Deutsch, PhD, University of Alabama Birmingham”Provides a comprehensive and highly informative review of several functional brain imaging techniques. It includes a level of detail that neuroscientists will appreciate…would be an excellent resource for all neuroscientists, neuroscience students, and anyone with a need to understand any of the aforementioned functional neuroimaging techniques.” –PsycCRITIQUES –This text refers to the hardcover edition.
