This volume brings together leading clinical investigators to describe effective interventions for a wide range of neuropsychological impairments. Coverage includes cognitive impairments/m-/problems with attention, learning and memory, visuoperception, language, apraxia, and executive functions/m-/as well as neurologically based social and emotional difficulties. Presented is a framework for developing, delivering, and evaluating services that target these specific areas of functioning while promoting the individual's overall adaptation and recovery. Chapters also address the importance of multidimensional assessment, provide best practice guidelines for clinical research, and discuss the role of pharmacotherapy in cognitive rehabilitation.

'This timely book, edited by a leading cognitive neuroscientist, represents an important contribution to the movement toward evidence-based interventions. Chapters by recognized experts provide a background in the history and methodology of cognitive neurorehabilitation, synthesize recent research, and appraise the applications to intervention in various neurobehavioral domains. Written from a scientific perspective, yet equally relevant to clinical practice, this is an indispensable book for both investigators and practitioners.' - Harvey S. Levin, Baylor College of Medicine, USA 'This book will be of immediate and vital importance to clinical neuropsychologists and allied professionals involved in caring for brain-damaged patients ... The field of neuropsychological rehabilitation, growing exponentially in size and importance, has been waiting for two decades for a definitive textbook of this caliber. This book is essential reading for clinical and experimental neuropsychologists, rehabilitation therapists, speech therapists, and others who care for patients with brain injury. It would also serve as an excellent textbook for a graduate-level course on neuropsychological rehabilitation. Finally, students enrolled in postdoctoral residency training programs in clinical neuropsychology should have access to this book.' - Daniel Tranel, University of Iowa, USA 'A timely and worthy contribution ... Each author has hewed to the editor's charge to evaluate neuropsychological interventions 'clinically and scientifically.' The result is a comprehensive treatment of current problems and practice in neuropsychological rehabilitation that is refreshingly frank and honest. The theoretical and evidentiary bases for practice are critically reviewed. This volume not only can serve as a reference for practitioners and students, but also sets out a clear research agenda for the field.' - Michael Weinrich, MD 'This book offers the most current, integrated knowledge of neuropsychological rehabilitation and clinical neuroscience. It examines many new advances in the field and demonstrates the significance of treating the brain-injured person as a whole, rather than as a collection of symptoms. Focusing on studies that have real-world applications, the book clearly outlines innovative research methodology to improve chances for replication ... Will become a gold standard in the field.' - Giuseppe Zappala, MD, Unit of Behavioral Neurology, Clinical Neurotraumatology and Rehabilitation, Garibaldi Hospital, Catania, Italy
