Ed. by Kyle Brauer Boone.

Guilford Pr.


481 pages




Boone (psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences, U. of California, Los Angeles, and Harbor-UCLA Medical Center) compiles 20 chapters on symptom feigning in neuropsychological testing. They mostly describe assessment techniques and strategies (such as forced-choice and non-forced-choice measures, standard memory tests, and motor and sensory tests) and cognitive effort testing in different clinical populations, with a chapter on functional neuroimaging. Chapters on testing in groups with low intelligence and psychiatric illness, and different cultural backgrounds are included, as well as testing relating to mild head injury, chronic pain or fatigue, multiple chemical sensitivity and exposure to mold, non-epileptic seizures, adult learning disability and ADHD, and in correctional settings. Contributors work in psychiatry, psychology, and neurology mostly in the US. The volume is aimed at psychologists and graduate-level students.
