The functional approach of this book is more useful for than other books that I read before, written by neuropsychologists. I recommend this book for all working with patients with cognitive and perceptual s: Difficulties with your thinking, memory or perception can put you in danger.

The largest two groups of people who acquire cognitive and perceptual impairments following brain damage are persons who experienced stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI). 1 The physical rehabilitation of these patient groups is addressed in Chap Stroke.

      Cognition can include both conscious and also unconscious processes. Attention, memory, visual and spatial processing, motor, perception are some of the mental processes. This highlights that perception can also be considered as one such cognitive ability. In many disciplines, cognition is an area of interest for academics as well as scientists. After a stroke, cognitive rehabilitation can aid the mind just as physical therapy aids the body, according to Psych Central, an online mental health and psychology network 5.A stroke damages the brain and creates cognition problems primarily related to language--a condition known as aphasia--as well as attention, memory and vision.
