Cognitive rehabilitation has reached a very exciting stage in its history. A world-wide, growing interest in the subject is reflected in numerous conferences, debates, books and papers. This interest has been stimulated by scientific research on the one hand and by improving clinical practice on the other. A wide range of methodologies is available to practitioners of cognitive rehabilitation, including those from cognitive neuropsychology, learning theory, developmental psychology, linguistics and - more recently - connectionist modelling. It is to be hoped that as a result of combined efforts in the areas of theoretical debate, scientific research and good practice, an overall theory of cognitive rehabilitation will eventually emerge and will inform psychologists and therapists working in the field. Current limits to cognitive rehabilitation are not necessarily permanent.
