In two volumes - available individually and as a set - the Textbook of Neural Repair and Rehabilitation provides comprehensive coverage of the science and practice of neurological rehabilitation. Volume 1 - Neural Repair and Plasticity - covers the basic sciences relevant to recovery of function following injury to the nervous system. Volume 2 - Medical Neurorehabilitation - stands alone as a clinical handbook for neurorehabilitation, providing authoritative guidelines on the management of disabling symptoms, and describing comprehensive rehabilitation approaches for all categories of disabling neurological disorders. The two volumes are better integrated with significant new material on outcome measures, clinical trials, combination therapies, animal models of locomotor function, nerve stimulation, and neuroprosthetics, including robotic rehabilitation strategies. Revised throughout, bringing the book fully up to date, and edited and written by leading international authorities, this essential resource provides a foundation for the work of both neuroscientists and clinical rehabilitation professionals.
