This definitive work, the combined effort of 30 international contributors, provides in-depth discussion of neuropsychological rehabilitation, the consequences of brain injury, fundamentals of recovery, current rehabilitation models, and treatment.

Remarkable in the depth of its content, this publication reveals the numerous changes that have occurred over the past decade and the new pathways open to treating TBI. Experts from the United States and Europe detail the consolidation of neuropsychological rehabilitation as an interdisciplinary field with strong clinical and applied roots. The material explores the foundations which support and direct treatment, and it combines those foundations with a vision of the current state of the most innovative methodologies (e.g., gene therapy, post-traumatic sleep disorder intervention, neural transplants).
