Contemporary Issues in cognitive rehabilitation
The past 10 years has seen an exponential rise in the evidence base underlying cognitive rehabilitation. This talk will discuss the processes underlying recovery with cognitive rehabilitation. It will provide examples of compensatory strategies and brain plasticity accompanying cognitive rehabilitation and explore the role of the environment and our genetic make-up in influencing the outcome with rehabilitation.
