This text covers the unique features of neuropsychological evaluations in the military. The author presents a thorough examination of the assessment needs of various military populations, with a special emphasis on traumatic brain injury, and the neurocognitive aspects of stress-related problems, such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and decision-making under stress. The chapters of the book are designed to integrate theory and application, and include case study examples as well as a comprehensive review of the latest research.
