My two favorite books on brain injury are:
- Gronwall, Mild Head Injury, Oxford, 1999.
- Lezak, Neuropsychological Assessment, 3rd, Oxford, 1995
Both Gronwall and Lezak were pioneers in neuropsychology. Dorothy Gronwall developed some of the most sensitive neuropsychological tests to measure attentional dysfunction after mild brain injury. Muriel Lezak’s treatise contains the most comprehensive and widely read book in the field. Both authors stress the need for clinical judgment about the subjective behavior changes after brain injury as more objective measures.
In furtherance of clinical judgment, we encourage all to read my work on brain injury stories, at TBIVOICES.
