This is the first truly comprehensive survey of cognitive rehabilitation, spanning the spectrum from basic science to functional outcome. The international team of expert authors provides a critical review of theoretical and methodological issues relating to specific rehabilitation procedures and also to program organization and management. The book is based on the twin premises that basic science is the foundation of rehabilitation and that successful outcome is dependent on the specificity of the rehabilitation. In demonstrating this, the book goes beyond cognitive rehabilitation treatments to cover biological, psychological, social, and historical factors such as course of recovery, mood and motivation, family environment, education, and age. With its emphasis on scientific principles, multidisciplinary practice, and functional outcome, this book will serve as an essential resource for all scientists and clinicians concerned with cognitive deficits secondary to altered brain functioning, and particularly to psychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists.

'... in this second edition of the already excellent text Cognitive Neurorehabilitation: Evidence and Application, interested readers have an invaluable resource for the empirical and theoretical bases of cognitive neurorehabilitation that will provide practitioners, researchers, and those in training with the foundations to know the difference between that which is based in science and what is wishful thinking. ... this new edition should not be viewed simply as an update. Rather, it is a timely and much needed contribution to the literature.' Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society
