Current Opinion in Neurobiology, 8, 281-287.
Year of publication:
This review shows that partial recovery of cognitive functioning (such as memory, attention, language and perception) can occur after brain injury. Factors influencing recovery are discussed. The influence of rehabilitation or intervention on cognition is also addressed and evidence provided to show that it is possible to enable brain injured people to compensate for their difficulties and to learn more efficiently.
