      INTRODUCTION. A significant proportion of patients with epilepsy are at an increased risk of cognitive impairment. 1, 2, 10 General mental slowness, memory impairment, and attention problems are the most common deficits in epilepsy patients. 5 Neuropsychology has made a major contribution to characterizing cognition in different types of epilepsy and epileptic syndromes. James’ and Watson's contributions to the principles of psychology in general, and neuropsychology specifically, led to an increased sensitivity to the need for empirical data to support theories of cognitive function, and the application of the scientific method to psychological studies.

    Synopsis Exploring Cognition: Damaged Brains and Neural Networks analyses the contribution made by cognitive neuropsychology and connectionist modelling to theoretical explanations of cognitive . The journal Cognitive Neuropsychology was first published in ” (Selnes, , p. 38). Not long afterwards, in , the field’s first textbook, Human Cognitive Neuropsychology, was published (Ellis & Young, ), and so was the first book critically reviewing the field (Shallice, ).

In recent years, these factors have diminished and "cognitive neuropsychology" has become a popular term to describe the new movements to join the study of cognition with the study of brain function. The factors which kept these areas separate were manifestations of his­ torical trends and represent a social distance which largely happened by.

With its emphasis on general methodological points, it will remain a valuable resource in a fast-evolving field. Cognitive neuropsychology is concerned with the patterns of cognitive performance shown by brain-damaged patients.

In spite of the enormous contribution made by cognitive psychology, it sometimes lacks ecological validity, suffers from paradigm specificity and possesses theoretical vagueness.

The fields of neuropsychology, cognitive psychology, neuropsychiatry, and neurology are all developing in the direction of understanding the roles of subcortical structures in behavior. This book is informative while defining the need and direction for new paradigms and methodologies for neuropsychological assessment.

Cognition is involved in the planning of actions and behaviours to reach a goal at a future time. In the s, cognitive neuropsychology developed as a related discipline which uses the methodology of cognitive psychology to study single persons with brain damage.Many of these discoveries are the result of converging investigations in different areas, such as cognitive and perceptual psychology, artificial intelligence, and neuropsychology.

This volume is intended to highlight a sample of work at the cutting edge of this research area for the benefit of students and researchers in a variety of disciplines.
