Here is the first volume of a new series that explores diversity, culture, and ethnicity and their impact on brain function. Each volume will provide a forum to examine and explore the influences of culture from both theoretical and applied viewpoints. Given that demographers predict that Hispanics will become the single largest ethnic group in the United States within a generation, the premier volume of this series deals with Hispanic populations. It features research-based evidence on the impact of Hispanic culture on brain-behavior relationships. Articles explore key factors and issues, such as acculturation, assimilation, cultural identity, and migration patterns. Clinical issues, such as competence and minimal standards and novel approaches for assessments of Hispanic populations, are discussed in detail. Neuropsychologists, psychologists, and psychiatrists will discover new findings and gain fascinating perspectives from many distinct disciplines.
