Neurorehabilitation is an expanding field with an increasing
clinical impact because of an ageing population. During the last 20
years neurorehabilitation has developed from a discipline with
little scientific background, separated from other medical centers,
to a medical entity largely based on the principles of 'evidenced
based medicine' with strong ties to basic research and clinical
neurology. Today neurorehabilitation is still a 'work in progress'
and treatment standards are not yet established for all aspects of
neurorehabilitation. There are very few books that address
contemporary neurorehabilitation from this perspective. This volume
moves the reader from theory to practice. It provides the reader
with an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of
neurorehabilitation, as well as a clear idea about how (and why) to
approach treatment decisions in individual patients.
