A cognitive neuropsychological approach to brain-behaviour relationships is presented and applied to understanding speech perception and production, language comprehension, attention, working memory and long-term memory. Models of language, attention, and memory are examined and their implications for clinical practice are considered. The major neurological disorders and psychological conditions that affect language, attention, and memory are discussed, along with approaches to cognitive and neuropsychological rehabilitation and recovery. Students acquire knowledge of normal cognition, the neuropsychological approach to brain- behaviour relationships and cognitive processes; the cognitive and behavioural consequences of brain damage and models of cognitive rehabilitation.
