Now available in paperback, this updated new edition summarizes the latest developments in cognitive neuroscience related to rehabilitation, reviews the principles of successful interventions and synthesizes new findings about the rehabilitation of cognitive changes in a variety of populations. With greatly expanded sections on treatment and the role of imaging, it provides a comprehensive reference for those interested in the science, as well as including the most up-to-date information for the practising clinician. It provides clear and practical guidance on why cognitive rehabilitation may or may not work. How to use imaging methods to evaluate the efficacy of interventions. What personal and external factors impact rehabilitation success. How biological and psychopharmacological changes can be understood and treated. How to treat different disorders of language and memory, and where the field is going in research and clinical application.

• Covers the topics important to cognitive rehabilitation, from basic anatomy and chemistry to methods, and from techniques to psychosocial considerations • Emphasizes evidence based procedures; a strong emphasis on the scientific approach to rehabilitation • Includes updated reviews of the principles underlying successful rehabilitation, the methods and values of imaging, and new rehabilitation methods

'… in this second edition of the already excellent text Cognitive Neurorehabilitation: Evidence and Application, interested readers have an invaluable resource for the empirical and theoretical bases of cognitive neurorehabilitation that will provide practitioners, researchers, and those in training with the foundations to know the difference between that which is based in science and what is wishful thinking. … this new edition should not be viewed simply as an update. Rather, it is a timely and much needed contribution to the literature.' Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society
