The Cognitive side of motor control
Reviews and Awards
"In this book, Professor Goldenberg has made an impressive case for placing apraxia at the centre of neuropsychological research ... this book not only represents not only a summary of his own seminal work in the area but the mose erudite and comprehensive review of the condition we are likely to encounter for some time" - Andrew Worthington, consultant in neuropsychology and rehabilitation, Perception.
"A pleasing combination of clinical storytelling in the vein of Oliver Sacks and scholarly review, this book is sure to appeal to students and early career clinicians interested in apraxia." - Doody's Notes
"The book by Goldenberg on apraxia contains a comprehensive description of different manifestations of apraxia and addresses the different classifications... I found the historical part particularly interesting, both as relates to apraxia but also ideas as to how the brain works." - Brain
"Apraxia - The Cognitive Side of Motor Control authored by one of the foremost authorities in the field of apraxia, Professor Georg Goldenberg, is a highly interesting and well-written addition to medical literature. The book offers a comprehensive and informative exploration into the historical basis of apraxia from the 19th century theoretical models to current interpretations. Only when this historical travel is dissected in its entirety as well presented by Goldenberg, does the true impetus and interest for present and future research emerge... I highly recommend Goldberg's impressive oeuvre on apraxia to those who dedicate their studies to the mysteries and complexities of the human brain." - European Neurology
