Slide 2 2 Reading Phantoms in the Brain: Probing the Mysteries of the Human Brain by V.S. Ramachandran Into the Silent Land: Travels in Neuropsychology by Paul Broks Taking non-traditional approach to this course, borrowed very heavily from my PhD advisor, Dr. Kusnecov who is a pro in teaching this course; only avail undergrad text is atrocious, so not using a textbook For those of you currently having an anxiety attack, I have suggestions laid out in the syllabus: Beaumont, J. G., Kenealy, P.M., & Rogers, M.J.C. (1999). The Blackwell Dictionary of Neuropsychology. Malden, Massachusetts, Blackwell Publishers. Further, if you definitely must have a textbook on neuropsychology (and few fit my approach in an introductory class), then the following is worth purchasing (there is a more expensive 6 th edition out now -about $95). It is at the graduate level, but considered the top textbook. Get it only if you are having trouble with the lectures: Kolb, B., & Wishaw, I.Q. (2003). Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology (5th edition). Freeman.
