Neuropsychological and Psychosocial Foundations of Neuro-Oncology provides an in-depth review of common cognitive, psychological, and social manifestations that occur in patients with brain cancer and other neuro-oncological issues. Chapters discuss primary CNS tumors, brain metastases, leptomeningeal disease, paraneoplastic disorders, and many other topics. Effects of CNS and systemic cancer treatment (i.e., radiotherapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy) are also examined, as are current practices for rehabilitation and targets for essential future interventions in vulnerable populations.

This book is fully illustrated with pathology photomicrographs, CT and MRI images, tables, and molecular pathway diagrams. Bringing neuropsychological and behavioral health trial knowledge from the bench to the bedside, this volume is an essential reference for practicing neuro-oncologists, neuropsychologists, nurses, and others working in the field of neuro-oncology.
