Book Description

Originally published in 1990, this book constitutes an objective evaluation of different cognitive rehabilitation techniques in relation to different types of brain injury at different stages of recovery. Various forms of cognitive rehabilitation are reviewed and clinical techniques are evaluated on the basis of their ability to restore functional independence or produce behaviour change, and improve aspects of cognitive ability.
