Handbook of Neuropsychology, 2nd Edition, Volume 9: Plasticity and Rehabilitation

Availability: Ready to download

Neuroplasticity is among the most exciting areas of research in cognitive neuroscience. In this volume, there are chapters on animal models of neuroplasticity, cortical map changes with practice and following brain damage, cross-modal reassignment of function, auditory system reassignment following learning and brain damage, the effects of amputation on phantom limb and pa Neuroplasticity is among the most exciting areas of research in cognitive neuroscience. In this volume, there are chapters on animal models of neuroplasticity, cortical map changes with practice and following brain damage, cross-modal reassignment of function, auditory system reassignment following learning and brain damage, the effects of amputation on phantom limb and pain perceptions, the effects of age on plasticity, the ability of the non-damaged hemisphere to take over functions of the damaged hemisphere, and the effects of cognitive skill learning on neural organization and function. A section describing how basic science findings can be translated into practical rehabilitation of patients follows. Rehabilitation programs for neglect, language, executive functions, and motor skills are described. The use of functional neuroimaging to provide a neural window on cognitive plasticity is discussed. The last section of the Handbook has traditionally been reserved for a discussion of the state-of-the-art of new technologies. Updates are provided on MRI, fMRI, PET, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and other technologies that have burst upon the cognitive neuroscience scene in the last ten years.
