Introduction: Developmental and Rehabilitative Issues in the Neuropsychology of Everyday Life

  • David E. Tupper
  • Keith D. Cicerone
Part of the Foundations of Neuropsychology book series (FNPS, volume 3)


In the earlier volume to this set, contributors addressed some of the fundamental concerns and practices currently raised during neuropsychology’s maturation into a more ecological science, particularly when neuropsychology is considered an assessment or diagnostic discipline. As neuropsychology moves further into an ecological phase of development, other more specific theoretical and practical issues will be brought to light, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the areas of development and rehabilitation.
