“The introductory sections of the text illustrate the breadth of knowledge of the editors....This revised text has successfully managed to capture the significant advances since original publication almost a decade ago. It has adopted a strongly evidence-based model to inform the reader of key concepts in the neurosciences and their relationship to clinical practice. This emphasis provides an excellent illustration of the benefits of the scientist-practitioner model. As such, I believe it will be of particular interest to clinicians and health professionals working with adults with neurological and psychiatric conditions.”

Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society

“The editors, Miller and Cummings, have assembled an impressive list of contributors for self-sufficient chapters yet were able to maintain fluidity in flow and consistency in organization....A standard reference for a broad audience. Whereas this book is certainly worthy of such consideration as a standard reference on the frontal lobes, the book's broad accessibility also allows its application as a comprehensive review for scholars in the basic and clinical neurosciences alike. The Human Frontal Lobes belongs on the bookshelf of any serious scholar of the basic neurosciences, behavioral psychology, neurology, neuropsychology, or psychiatry.”

Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

“This book is destined to become a classic reference and to have readers eagerly anticipating the next edition. The book not only summarizes what we do know about the frontal lobes but also brings to the forefront many questions still remaining....A book that provides an intellectual pleasure cruise and is deserving of a prominent place on neuroscientists' bookshelves.”

Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology

“Bruce Miller and Jeffrey Cummings have done a fine job in drawing together the disparate strands of current scientific knowledge that are allowing us to begin to understand this most integrative part of the brain and its particular concern with abstract subject matters....Heartily recommended to anyone interested in this daunting and emerging area of neuroscience.”

The New England Journal of Medicine

“A well-written and comprehensive text from two eminent clinical neuroscientists. In keeping with a tradition of excellence, this second edition expands on the editors' highly successful first edition. A historical and conceptual overview has been added, as well as a new section on imaging that includes contributions from foremost experts. Advances in the understanding of frontotemporal dementia are also reflected in chapters emphasizing the importance of this previously understudied disease. This text is a 'must read' for anyone seriously interested in understanding the biology of behavior and the diseases that cause it to go awry.”

—Charles DeCarli, MD, Department of Neurology and Center for Neuroscience, University of California, Davis

“Few areas of the brain have attracted more research than the frontal lobes. Once considered esoteric, frontal lobe disease is now a common diagnosis in patients with neurodegenerative dementias. This updated second edition, edited by two prominent leaders in behavioral and cognitive neurology, contains a thoughtfully integrated exploration of frontal lobe neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, imaging, and neuropsychology. The contributors include some of the most productive clinicians and scientists in the field. Drs. Miller and Cummings have edited a volume that deserves to become the standard reference work on the human frontal lobes.”

—Marsel Mesulam, MD, Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer's Disease Center, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University

“This second edition provides the perfect framework for further integrating neurology, psychiatry, and neuropsychology in the understanding and treatment of major mental disorders. A great breadth of scientific knowledge, clinical acumen, and provocative analysis is brought to bear on enigmatic frontal lobe syndromes. Detailed and comprehensive, this is a vital reference for practitioners, investigators, and students who wish to be at the cutting edge of clinical neuroscience and multidisciplinary research.”
