Year of publication:
This chapter describes three kinds of deficit following brain injury: those which stem directly from the lesioning of neural tissue, those which are learned after brain damage and those which predate or co-exist with the neurological damage. The main part of the chapter provides some illustrations of these problems and the methods used to treat them. Clinical examples of treatment cover motor problems, cognitive deficits, behaviour problems, emotional problems and frontal lobe deficits.
