Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(2), 168–169. Reviews the book, Handbook of Schizophrenia, Vol. 5: Neuropsychology, Psychophysiology, and Information Processing edited by S. R. Steinhauer, J. H. Gruzelier, and J. Zubin (1991). This volume consists of 23 chapters written by leading researchers in the field. The chapters are organized into three sections: psychophysiology, sensory, perceptual, and motor processes, and neuropsychological evaluation and cognitive processes. This is a valuable compendium of the last decades of research in the areas covered. It clearly informs the reader about what has been done. Although the impact of the work covered in this volume on our understanding of schizophrenia is only modest, it may point the way toward the application of new methods and concepts.
