This monograph translates neuroscientific research to illuminate ongoing and future practices for the rehabilitation of patients with neurologic diseases. The author dissects fundamental concepts, current practices, and clinical trials to define what clinicians and researchers need to consider as they pursue best practices and areas ripe for exploration. Remarkable studies from functional anatomy, neural repair, physiologic imaging of the brain, and brain-machine interfaces reveal how the structure and function of the nervous system may respond to therapeutic manipulations for walking, grasping, and cognition. These concepts are brought forward into treating the medical complications and the impairments and disabilities of patients across neurologic diseases.

Review quote

. . . this book packs an impressive amount of content and range of topics in its 599 pages. * Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair, 17, 2 * This comprehensive book is a tour de force by the author. It is filled with both practical information on neurorehabilitation and state-of-the-art reviews of the advancing edge of research in this area. This is a valuable book that deserves a place on the shelf of every neurologist and psychiatrist involved in neurorehabilitation. It deserves to be read cover to cover. * Doody's Journal * . . . an excellent book and a major tour de force through the whole field of neurological rehabilitation. The main attraction of this book . . . is the merging of basic neuroscience and clinical medicine . . . a major achievement for a single author . . . the style is easy and the book is a pleasure to read . . . a landmark in the development of neurological rehabilitation . . . Bruce Dobkin should be congratulated. * Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry *
