Overview

In two freestanding but linked volumes, Textbook of Neural Repair and Rehabilitation provides comprehensive coverage of the science and practice of neurological rehabilitation. Volume 1, Neural Repair and Plasticity, covers the basic sciences relevant to recovery of function following injury to the nervous system, reviewing plasticity in the normal CNS, mechanisms of neuronal death, axonal regeneration, stem cell biology and current research strategies. Volume 2, Medical Neurorehabilitation, provides authoritative guidelines on the management of disabling symptoms and describes comprehensive rehabilitation approaches for the major categories of disabling neurological disorders. Edited and written by leading international authorities from the neurosciences and clinical neurorehabilitation, the two-volume set is an essential resource for rehabilitation professionals and a comprehensive reference for all scientists and clinicians in the field.
