Brain plasticity is the focus of a growing body of research with significant implications for neurorehabilitation. This state-of-the-art volume explores ways in which brain-injured individuals may be helped not only to compensate for their loss of cognitive abilities, but also possibly to restore those abilities. Expert contributors examine the extent to which damaged cortical regions can actually recover and resume previous functions, as well as how intact regions are recruited to take on tasks once mediated by the damaged region. Evidence-based rehabilitation approaches are reviewed for a range of impairments and clinical populations, including both children and adults.

"The take-home message of Neuroplasticity and Rehabilitation is not only that our brains are more plastic than we ever expected, but also that we are learning how to influence this plasticity through informed treatment to achieve truly meaningful rehabilitation outcomes. From animal studies to  sophisticated human trials, the book gathers a wealth of information from eminent experts. This book is absolutely essential reading for basic neuroscientists as well as for rehabilitation professionals at all levels of care. Understanding how and why the study of neuroplasticity can inform treatment choices will allow clinicians to make cutting-edge clinical decisions. These decisions may range from individual treatments, such as choice of physiotherapy intervention following stroke, to the design of holistic rehabilitation programs for survivors of severe acquired brain injury. The future of rehabilitation has now been linked inextricably to the growing field of neuroplasticity." - Jill Winegardner, Oliver Zangwill Centre for Neuropsychological Rehabilitation, UK
"This is a comprehensive book incorporating the latest research on neuroplasticity in diverse areas of cognitive function.. It serves as an authoritative guide to how clinical practice can effectively incorporate significant new findings about brain plasticity and learning. It will be equally appropriate and useful for graduate students, experienced clinicians, and researchers in the field." - Wayne A. Gordon, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, USA
