<p>This first-of-its-kind book offers clinicians a unique and comprehensive system of cognitive and behavioral testing that is tiered and context-appropriate for the diagnosis of mental status. Because the challenge nowadays with neurologic syndrome presentations is no longer merely lesion localization, but the degree, extent and nature of a cognitive and/or behavioral impairment, this work proposes a more targeted system of mentation evaluation&nbsp; -- one that incorporates behavioral, neurological, neuropsychiatric, and neuropsychological components.&nbsp;</p><p></p><p>Developed by synthesizing outcomes data from a range of stroke registries, this novel work offers a stepwise, hierarchical approach to mentation evaluation largely determined by level of consciousness and degree of cooperation. &nbsp;Organized across 14 chapters, the book begins with an introduction to the challenges of cognitive and behavioral assessment, as well as a discussion of various clinical presentations ranging from mild behavioral impairment to cognitive reserve and its implications. &nbsp;Subsequent chapters then address various approaches to mental status evaluation and explore how these tests affect brain physiology. The work closes with a unique discussion of the various lay populations that may benefit from cognitive and behavioral evaluation.&nbsp; </p><p>&nbsp;Authored by a renowned expert in the field, <em>Clinical Mentation Evaluation: A Connectomal Approach to Rapid and Comprehensive Assessment</em> is an invaluable reference that seeks to revitalize neurological and psychiatric disease measurement within the clinical setting.&nbsp; The work will be of interest to all clinicians in training and clinical practice who regularly, or even periodically, conduct mental status examination.</p><p></p>

<p>Features a tiered approach with rapid, intermediate and longer assessments depending on the clinical urgency and context.</p><p></p>

<p>&nbsp;Incorporates neurological, neuropsychological, neuropsychiatric and language assessments.</p><p></p>

<p>&nbsp;Based on the newly appreciated network organization of the brain which subserve these cognitive processes.</p><p></p>
