"A fantastic and monumental contribution to our field." √ Ralph M. Reitan, PhD The field of neuropsychology has many specialized books on particular diseases, but there is always a need for a general text to cover the major aspects of neuropsychology from neuroanatomy to assessment to practice issues. This is one such book that attempts to provide comprehensive coverage of the field." --Doody's In the last decade, the number of books, courses, training opportunities, and journals dealing with clinical neuropsychology has greatly increased. Demand for a complete reference in the field is growing as practitioners in private practice, the court system, and the medical field continue to make discoveries and advance our knowledge of the brain system and how it affects our everyday lives. In order to address this urgent need, Drs. Horton and Wedding have edited this Third Edition of the classic Neuropsychology Handbook. In its pages are reviews of all the major areas in which clinical neuropsychologists work: the foundations of clinical neuropsychology brain structure and function neurological disorders psychiatric disorders diagnostic decision-making symptom validity testing neuroimaging behavioral change following traumatic brain injury disability determination rehabilitation planning, and more Very specialized areas of practice such as clinical neuropsychology with children, clinical neurotoxicology, and neuropsychological assessment in criminal law cases also receive chapters.
Irlantilainen Sheridan Le Fanu (1814–1873) on yksi merkittävimmistä viktoriaanisen ajan goottilaisten kauhu- ja mysteerikertomusten kirjoittajista. Hänen vaikutustaan voi verrata amerikkalaiseen aikalaiskirjailija Edgar Allan Poeen. Hän kirjoitti useita romaaneja ja pienoisromaaneja, mutta kenties parhaiten hänet tunnetaan novelleistaan. Le Fanun kertomusten teho ei perustu shokkiefekteille, vaan pikemminkin hienovaraiselle tunnelman ja jännitteen rakentamiselle. Hänellä on tapana jättää tarinan merkittäviä yksityiskohtia avoimeksi, selittämättä. Mysteeri rakentuu monitulkintaisuudelle: oudot tapahtumat saattavat olla yliluonnollisia, mutta myös luonnollinen selitys on mahdollinen. Timo Hännikäisen suomentama valikoima sisältää neljä Le Fanun pitkää novellia. Mukana on kirjailijan tunnetuin kertomus Carmilla, joka on vaikuttanut suuresti myöhempään vampyyrikirjallisuuteen, kuten Bram Stokerin Draculaan, ja se on myös filmattu useasti. Tarinan tunnetuin elokuvamukaelma on Carl Theodor Dreyerin klassinen Vampyr (1932). Sisällys: • Vihreää teetä (Green Tea, 1872) • Carmilla (Carmilla, 1872) • Selonteko oudoista häiriöistä Aungier Streetillä (An Account of Some Strange Disturbances in Aungier Street, 1851) • Lapsi joka lähti haltijatarten matkaan (The Child That Went with the Fairies, 1870)

All of the templates can be flipped, inverted and rotated, and the designs include standard, square, oblong and large cards in both vertical and horizontal orientation. For each template there are several examples of cards made by different cardmakers, providing the reader with numerous ideas for their own card designs. This book encourages the reader to think out of the box and use embellishments and paper combinations in ways that they have never thought of before.
How does Islam engage with the idea of the modern and with the contemporary world? How is Muslim tradition to be reconciled with a world in continuous flux and change? These questions lie at the heart of current discussions of the Islamic faith and of its doctrines, beliefs and practices.
Engaging directly with such questions, this important volume discusses such key themes as identity and citizenship, piety and protest and music and modes of dress. Muslim as well as non-Muslim scholars explore how religiosity and tradition may both have an active role to play in the unfolding of what we understand of as "the modern." Modernity is commonly portrayed as a break with traditionalism: and as a marriage to the secular. Yet the core values at stake--from the ethos of intellectualism to the pluralism of civic culture--have roots in diverse civilizations, and certainly in those of Islam. A vital theme in the book is the role played by the ethical imagination in expressions of the civil determined by a diversity of Qur’anic understandings. This role is important in practices of civil society and citizenship, in grappling with new technologies, and in the challenges posed by political violence. Since 9/11, the West's failure to come to grips with plural modernities has reinforced simplistic assumptions about a "clash of civilizations." Fresh perspectives are offered here on what it is to be both modern and Muslim, mindful of the multiple narratives that inform both identities.
A legkövérebb magyar ember az egészséges táplálkozásról és a méregtelenítés csodájáról beszél, miközben sűrűn öblögeti torkát a saját Bt.-je által forgalmazott "csodaszerrel", az Emese Acapulco Diabetikus Gyógyíróval. Az ő abszurd monológja ez a hamisítatlan Parti Nagy Lajos szöveg, melyben csak úgy röpködnek a csodás szókreálmányok és frenetikus mondatok. Közben, még ha akár amúgy kákabélűek is volnánk, úgy érezzük: reng a tokánk és rázkódik a hasunk a nevetéstől.
