Chapter 9 tries to elucidate how knowledge of the mechanical forces involved in head trauma can influence neuropsychological abilities generally (and test performance in particular) and how observations of behaviour made during neuropsychological examination can reveal aspects of brain dysfunction that supplement (or sometimes supersede) quantitative information obtained from formal tests. The chapter will not focus on specific neuropsychological approaches to assessment or on procedural issues surrounding forensic neuropsychology.
