The Integrated Brain: Implications for Neuropsychological Evaluation

  • Leonard F. Koziol
  • Deborah Ely Budding


If you have come this far, dear reader, you have come a long way in modifying your knowledge about brain–behavior relationships. You have learned information about brain structures that have traditionally been considered mainly as co-processors of movement. You have learned about the vertical organization of brain–behavior relationships. You have learned how movement is organized within the brain, and you have learned how to apply these concepts of movement to cognition and emotion, because you have learned that cognition and emotion are organized in a way that is parallel to movement.
