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.
