About the Author

Peter Arnett, PhD Director of Clinical Training Associate Professor of Psychology The Pennsylvania State University


"The need to heighten awareness in the field of non-neurological influences on neuropsychological test scores is critical and this is an estimable attempt to broach the topic. Readers will find this book enlightening and critical to implement in their practice. There are some weaknesses that stop the book short of its pinnacle, but these hopefully will be addressed in the next edition." -- Doody's "This is a very good book on the influence of the secondary factors on the results obtained in a neuropsychological assessment, as well as secondary factors most important to watch for a variety of neurological diseases and disorders. Several chapters using both the case studies and of the useful for clinicians summary tables (ex: recommendations of specific tools according to the evidence). We should also remember that this would be the first book devoted exclusively to the influence of secondary factors." -Simon Charbonneau, PhD, Quebec Association of Neuropsychologists "This book should be required reading for every neuropsychologist. A better understanding of all the factors that contribute to cognitive test performance will not only help us to separate the true signal from the noise, but might even hold the key to finding better ways to improve functioning for our patients. With this book we now have an excellent compilation of empirical data to better understand the "noise," and in doing so, our patients." --Naomi Chaytor, The Clinical Neuropsychologist
