This distinctive handbook is a key reference for both clinicians and researchers working in the scientific investigation of aphasia. The focus is on how the study of acquired language disorders has contributed to our understanding of normal language and its neural substrates, and to the clinical management of language disorders. The handbook is unique in that it reviews studies from the major disciplines in which aphasia research is conducted - cognitive neuropsychology, linguistics, neurology, neuroimaging, and speech-language pathology - as they apply to each topic of language. For each language domain (such as reading), there is a chapter devoted to theory and models of the language task, a chapter devoted to the neural basis of the language task (focusing on recent neuroimaging studies) and a chapter devoted to clinical diagnosis and treatment of impairments in that domain.

During the last years a significant number of papers, books, and monographs devoted to speech and language impairments in bilingual children have been published. Different aspects and questions have been approached and today we have a relatively good understanding of the specific characteristics of the speech and language difficulties potentially observed in bilingual and multilingual children. This interest has been significantly resulted from the potential developmental and educational consequences of bilingualism. Our understanding of the communication disorders in adult populations is notoriously more limited, even though over 50% of the adult population can speak at least another language in addition to his/her native language. That simply means that over 50% of the communication disorders observed in adults are bilingual speech and language disorders: bilingual aphasias, bilingual dementias, bilingual stuttering, etc. This book was written with the specific purpose of filling this gap. The major purpose of this book has been to integrate the state of the art on the different aspects of the communication disorders observed in adult bilinguals. The book is organised in such a way that an integrated perspective of bilingualism is presented: from the normal conditions to the pathology; from the clinical descriptions to the rehabilitation issues; from the biological factors to the cultural variables.

Volume 3 in the series Handbook of Neuropsychology, covers traditional approaches to the topic as well as new techniques for investigating language disorders. Separate chapters provide detailed treatments of each of the prominent symptoms of aphasia (e.g., deficits of speech production and perception, of naming, repetition, comprehension, etc.), including cognitive and psycholinguistic interpretations. The cognitive disorders that are related to aphasia, including memory and attentional impairments, limb apraxia and acalculia, are discussed in separate chapters. Supplementing these reviews of aphasia research are chapters detailing other approaches to the study of language/brain relationships, including functional neuroimaging, event-related potentials, direct cortical stimulation and study of "split brain" patients. Each chapter provides a current review of its topic, with extensive references, providing invaluable reference material for the researcher and clinician.
