Functions of the Right Cerebral Hemisphere discusses the studies of the different functions served by the right hemisphere in light of knowledge as well as normal and clinical studies on the subject. The book covers topics such as the visuospatial abilities of the right hemisphere; the analysis of basic perceptual properties; its creation and operation on representations; studies on the function of the right hemisphere in relation to music; and the language capabilities of the right hemisphere. Also covered in the book are the methods for studying cerebral hemispheric function; the development of right hemispheric abilities; and the relation of the right hemisphere to reading disorders. The text is recommended for neurologists who would like to know more or make a study on the right hemisphere and its functions.

It is vital to have knowledge of the neuroanatomical structures andfunctional neurological mechanisms, which are disrupted inneurogenic speech/language, disordered persons in order tounderstand the speech/language deficits themselves. This book provides a comprehensive coverage of the neurologicalbasis of both the clinically recognised forms of aphasia and thevarious motor speech disorders, in both children and adults. Italso covers more recently recognised language disorders, such asParkinsons and related diseases, right hemisphere damage,closed-head injury, dementia, etc. This is a perfect text forpractitioners who need to understand the integration ofneuroanatomy and functional neurology with the practice ofspeech-language pathology.

The statement, "The Right Hemisphere (RH) processes language"--while not exactly revolutionary--still provokes vigorous debate. It often elicits the argument that anything the RH does with language is not linguistic but "paralinguistic." The resistance to the notion of RH language processing persists despite the fact that even the earliest observers of Left Hemisphere (LH) language specialization posited some role for the RH in language processing, and evidence attesting to various RH language processes has steadily accrued for more than 30 years. In this volume, chapters pertain to a wide, but by no means, exhaustive set of language comprehension processes for which RH contributions have been demonstrated. The sections are organized around these processes, beginning with initial decoding of written or spoken input, proceeding through semantic processing of single words and sentences, up to comprehension of more complex discourse, as well as problem solving. The chapters assembled here should begin to melt this resistance to evidence of RH language processing. This volume's main goal is to compile evidence about RH language function from a scattered literature. The editorial commentaries concluding each section highlight the relevance of these phenomena for psycholinguistic and neuropsychological theory, and discuss similarities and apparent discrepancies in the findings reported in individual chapters. In the final chapter, common themes that emerge from the enterprise of studying RH language and future challenge for the field are reviewed. Although all chapters focus only on "typical" laterality of right handed people, this work provides a representative sample of the current state of the art in RH language research. Important features include: * a wide range of coverage from speech perception and reading through complex discourse comprehension and problem-solving; * research presented from both empirical and theoretical perspectives; and * commentaries and conclusions integrating findings and theories across sub-domains, and speculating on future directions of the field.

Former Harley Street consultant David Pedersen shows how hypnosis can be used as an alternative to drug therapy in a wide range of patients. Cameral Analysis shows how the neurophysiological division of the brain into two separate hemispheres may account for the symptoms of psychoneurotic behaviour. Using hypnosis, the two halves of the brain can be made to function as a whole once more, curing these distressing symptoms without the side effects of costly drug therapies.
