9780199797882: Stroke Rehabilitation: Insights from Neuroscience and Imaging

Stroke Rehabilitation: Insights from Neuroscience and Imaging informs and challenges neurologists, rehabilitation therapists, imagers, and stroke specialists to adopt more restorative and scientific approaches to stroke rehabilitation based on new evidence from neuroscience and neuroimaging literatures. The fields of cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging are advancing rapidly and providing new insights into human behavior and learning. Similarly, improved knowledge of how the brain processes information after injury and recovers over time is providing new perspectives on what can be achieved through rehabilitation.

Stroke Rehabilitation explores the potential to shape and maximize neural plastic changes in the brain after stroke from a multimodal perspective. Active skill based learning is identified as a central element of a restorative approach to rehabilitation. The evidence behind core learning principles as well as specific learning strategies that have been applied to retrain lost functions of movement, sensation, cognition and language are also discussed. Current interventions are evaluated relative to this knowledge base and examples are given of how active learning principles have been successfully applied in specific interventions. The benefits and evidence behind enriched environments is reviewed with examples of potential application in stroke rehabilitation. The capacity of adjunctive therapies, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation, to modulate receptivity of the damaged brain to benefit from behavioral interventions is also discussed in the context of this multimodal approach. Focusing on new insights from neuroscience and imaging, the book explores the potential to tailor interventions to the individual based on viable brain networks.

This book is intended for clinicians, rehabilitation specialists and neurologists who are interested in using these new discoveries to achieve more optimal outcomes. Equally as important, it is intended for neuroscientists, clinical researchers, and imaging specialists to help frame important clinical questions and to better understand the context in which their discoveries may be used.

About the Author:

Review:


"At last a book that succinctly covers the opportunities for restorative recovery following stroke. Written in accessible language this book provides a comprehensive overview of the neuroscience literature. It is an essential addition to the bookshelf of any stroke clinician who strives to provide the best care to their patients." -- Professor Marion Walker, Professor of Stroke Rehabilitation, Associate Director UK Stroke Research Network, Division of Rehabilitation and Ageing, University of Nottingham Medical School, UK


"Rehabilitation needs a sound theoretical basis. This book provides an exciting and up-to-date review of evidence to develop a sound platform for a rational rehabilitation. Although based on stroke, which is probably the disorder with the best evidence base, the principles developed in this book will apply to other neurological problems and they will indeed be relevant across all rehabilitation. Finally this book will arouse and maintain the reader's interest in the clinical phenomena seen in patients after stroke because it will explain the how and why of the patient's experience." -- Prof Derick Wade, MA, MB, BChir, FRCP, MD, Professor of Neurological Rehabilitation, Department of Clinical Neurology, University of Oxford and Consultant in Neurological Rehabilitation, Oxford Centre for Enablement, Oxford UK


"The role of neuroplasticity in recovery of function in stroke rehabilitation has faced uncertainty with evolving evidence of the influence of varying therapy approaches. Leanne Carey's book provides a thorough review of the literature concerning neuronal recovery and provides compelling evidence for a more restorative paradigm of therapy delivery. This well written book will be valuable asset to challenge the thinking and influence service provision of clinicians involved in neurorehabilitation." -- John Olver MBBS, MD (Melb), FAFRM (RACP), Medical Director, Rehabilitation, Epworth HealthCare and Victor Smorgon Chair of Rehabilitation, Monash University - Epworth HealthCare, Melbourne, Australia
