Cognitive Neurorehabilitation: A Comprehensive Approach

Overview

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.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Linda Laatsch, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a well-written, well-compiled book that is of great value to a range of professionals in the fields of rehabilitation, neurology, and neuropsychology. The contributors, from diverse fields within the U.S, Canada, and Europe, are well known in the field of rehabilitation. The book was developed from a conference, which took place in 1995, and it is an attempt to provide a comprehensive survey of cognitive rehabilitation.
Purpose: This book is designed to be an "updated" informative sourcebook for individuals within the field. The editors' efforts towards their established goals need to be commended because the book is truly what they hoped: a valuable, timely, updated review of pertinent issues in cognitive rehabilitation. They acknowledge that, with today's advancements in neuroimaging, cognitive rehabilitation cannot be studied or understood without consideration of the biological substrates associated with the rehabilitation efforts. This is a novel and an important statement to make within the field.
Audience: The audience, as stated above, is diverse and not limited to cognitive rehabilitation specialists. This book is essential for specialists in the areas of rehabilitation at all levels — beginning, intermediate, and advanced. It is especially valuable to academic researchers who are interested in systematically studying cognitive rehabilitation in terms of outcome and biological effects.
Features: There are well-written chapters on the mechanics of recovery, including descriptions of neuroplasticity and intracerebral transplantation. In one chapter contributors take a cognitive psychological approach to compensation that is especially helpful to practitioners. An interesting chapter on the relationship between gender and recovery, an infrequently considered variable, is provided. Reviews of pharmacological approaches are provided in three chapters. Clinical approaches are described in a comprehensive technique section. Also included is a chapter on the essentials of managing a cognitive rehabilitation center.
Assessment: The editors are inclusive and broad in their approach. They do not present one type of approach, as others have done in previous works, such as Parente's Retraining Cognition (Aspen Publishers, 1996). While books on technique alone are valuable, this book includes a range of ideas and philosophies within the field of cognitive neurorehabilitation.
