Written by leading experts in the field, this invaluable text situates the practice of cognitive and behavioral rehabilitation in the latest research from neurobiology and cognitive neuroscience. Initial chapters review current findings on neuronal injury, plasticity, and recovery. The volume next examines the neurobiology of core cognitive domains--attention, memory, language, visuospatial awareness, and executive functioning--focusing on the processes underpinning both healthy and impaired functioning. Highlighting the practical applications of the research, authors describe available interventions in each domain and set forth clear recommendations for clinical practice. Also addressed are ways to understand and manage challenging behaviors, such as aggression, that may emerge in brain-injured persons. The concluding chapter provides overall strategies for helping people recover from the two most common forms of acquired neurological disability: traumatic brain injury and stroke.

This book offers a comprehensive, up-to-date, and balanced overview of the current literature on neuropsychological rehabilitation. The editor's firm grasp of both clinical practice and clinical neuroscience makes this a fine book that is essential reading for teachers, researchers, and practitioners in the field of neurorehabilitation.--Ian Robertson, PhD, Institute of Neuroscience, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland Rehabilitation specialists in widely diverse areas of practice, and at all stages of training and experience, doubtless will find this book an extremely valuable resource. It is a particularly compelling volume in that each of the chapters is written by one or more internationally recognized experts in the particular topic. The book begins with state-of-the-art reviews of brain reorganization and cortical plasticity after neuronal injury, and then covers in depth the theories, mechanisms, and intervention approaches associated with the most prominent cognitive and behavioral difficulties experienced by individuals with acquired brain injury.--Catherine A. Mateer, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Victoria, Canada This book is very helpful to me as a practicing speech-language pathologist. It provides a clear and comprehensible overview of both the biology of brain damage and recovery and the practical implications and techniques that effectively arise from this information. Covering the key areas of rehabilitation, the book provides specific and practical suggestions and techniques for the clinician. The editor states that this book is an attempt to bridge the gap between basic neuroscience and clinical practice. As a researcher and clinician, I think she has succeeded brilliantly.--Jack S. Damico, PhD, Department of Communicative Disorders, University of Louisiana at Lafayette Rehabilitation of brain-injured patients has entered a phase characterized by more systematic research....This timely volume provides a scientific background in attention, memory, and language research while critically reviewing the literature concerning interventions to improve outcomes in these domains following brain injury. Although there are still many challenges in developing brain injury rehabilitation methods supported by randomized clinical trials, this volume provides an informative integration of progress in major areas that will be of interest to clinicians and investigators.--Harvey S. Levin, PhD, Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, Baylor College of Medicine -The stated goal of the book is to bridge the long-standing chasm between advances in the fields of basic and cognitive neuroscience and the study and practice of rehabilitation....This volume accomplishes its goal by providing a series of expertly written, integrative analyses contributed by leading authorities in their fields....In this well organized and edited collection, the disorders are clearly delineated despite their multidimensional characteristics....For the neuroscientists doing basic work in the lab, this book will help them to envision the impact that their work may have in the creation of new more effective therapies, and for those who hope to develop and implement those therapies, this volume provides excellent guidance for future work. If the quality of the contributions in this volume is any indication, the future of the field is indeed very promising.--Clinical Psychology Review, 1/25/2004ffThe book is well organized....Although there are other books available on current rehabilitation practices and on basic brain and cognitive research, this is the one to read to gain a glimpse of how these fields may merge and grow to benefit persons with brain dysfunction.--Journal of International Neuropsychological Society, 1/25/2004
