This authoritative work, now thoroughly revised, has given thousands of clinicians, students, and researchers a state-of-the-art understanding of the human frontal lobes—the large brain region that plays a critical role in behavior, cognition, health, and disease. Leading experts from multiple disciplines address the anatomy and chemistry of the frontal cortex, neuropsychological assessments of capabilities unique to the frontal lobes, the nature of (and possible treatment avenues for) frontotemporal dementia and related conditions, and implications for understanding and treating neuropsychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia, mania, and depression. Illustrations include eight pages in full color.

New to This Edition:

“The book brings together an outstanding list of researchers to update our current knowledge of the anatomy, behavioral functioning, and disease states of the frontal lobes….This continues to be an excellent resource on the frontal lobes. The new chapters are relevant to clinical practice and research. The book also has a much more integrated approach across the book, with neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, neuropsychology, neurogenetics, and neuroimaging. This edition is sufficiently updated on current issues in the field [and] is a worthwhile replacement of the previous edition. *****!”

Doody's Review Service


“A comprehensive, well-organized, and authoritative book. Prior editions have been on the required reading lists for trainees and practitioners in behavioral neurology, neuropsychiatry, neuropsychology, and cognitive neuroscience. In the third edition, the editors have reorganized the material and added a variety of new topics, including frontal systems dysfunction in a number of psychiatric disorders and expanded coverage of treatment. Miller and Cummings have mentored a generation of clinicians and scientists toward a nuanced understanding of frontal systems function and dysfunction. This book brings their passion for the subject to a new level of sophisticated scholarship.”

—Brad Dickerson, MD, Tom Rickles Chair in Progressive Aphasia Research and Director, Frontotemporal Disorders Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital; Associate Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School


“Provides comprehensive coverage of frontal lobe neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, and neuropsychology, with an emphasis on the clinical presentation of and state-of-the-art treatments for frontal dysfunction across neurological and psychiatric syndromes. The editors—major figures in behavioral neurology and intellectual descendants of D. Frank Benson—have assembled an incredibly strong cast of contributors to bring this work to fruition. The enormous scope is complemented by critical depth in each chapter; the density of novel material shows how much has been learned over the last decade.”

—Robert M. Bilder, PhD, ABPP-CN, Michael E. Tennenbaum Family Professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles


“It wasn’t long ago that scientists and clinicians considered the frontal lobes an enigma and could teach only vaguely about their functions. The fresh and contemporary third edition of this acclaimed work provides readers with succinct critical analyses of newly discovered mechanisms and functions of the frontal lobes. This book can serve as a core text for advanced students in cognitive and clinical neuroscience who need to acquire foundational principles in frontal lobe investigation and patient management. With up-to-date coverage of imaging; neuropsychiatric disorders; genetics; treatment approaches; and networks underlying salience, social behavior, and apathy, it will also enable seasoned scientists and clinicians to stay current with 21st-century frontal lobe neuroscience breakthroughs.”

—Paul J. Eslinger, PhD, Professor of Neurology, Neural and Behavioral Sciences, and Radiology, Penn State Hershey Medical Center and College of Medicine
