  • Identifies commonly used neuropsychological test instruments for evaluating cognitive deficits, with emphasis on their input and output characteristics
  • Contrasts these with NeurXercise computer-based exercises to highlight connection between testing and treatment
  • Appendices are a quick reference for the input and output characteristics of common neuropsychological tests

Planners, timers, and similar items have long been used to compensate for cognitive deficits after the brain recovers from injury or illness. Although such tools can be effective, they limit patients’ use of their own resources in their recovery. By contrast, cognitive remediation offers an alternative by using the brain’s intact structures in making up deficits, giving patients a greater sense of control than reliance on outside devices.

 

Cognitive Remediation for Brain Injury and Neurological Illness brings this modality into clear focus, providing both up-to-date data and a highly useful framework for treatment planning and intervention. This instructive volume explains the mechanisms behind cognitive remediation and makes the empirical case for its clinical use. Readers are taken through each stage of assessment and treatment, demonstrated by the innovative computer-based NeurXercise program, and a series of in-depth case examples shows the interventions in action.  

Concise and practical, Cognitive Remediation for Brain Injury and Neurological Illness charts new paths toward patient recovery for neuropsychologists, health psychologists, and rehabilitation specialists.
