A good starting place is B. Kolb's and I. Whishaw's "Fundamaentals of
Human Neuropsychology", from W. H., Freeman and Company. The copy on my
shelf is the 3rd edition from 1990; I imagine the book has been through at
least one more revision since then.
It's large, fairly comprehensive, and quite readable. I've had a very
positive response from students when I've used the book in undergraduate
classes in the past, but it would also be suitable for beginning level
