Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can occur through road traffic incidents, falls, or violence, and is therefore an extremely prevalent type of injury, constituting a significant burden on health care around the world. As more people are able to recover physically from TBI, it is important to consider how to help repair the cognitive functions of the brain. The cognitive functions could be greatly maximized by appropriate Neuropsychological rehabilitation, which occurs within months of the damage. This book discusses both the theoretical and practical applications of Neuropsychological rehabilitation techniques, offering a comprehensive overview of the process. Using several case studies from India, gained over years of clinical practice, research and academic teaching, this book offers an excellent guide to the procedures and tasks needed to respond effectively to patients with TBI. Although focused on the Indian context, this book will appeal to students and practitioners around the world as a useful resource on Neuropsychological rehabilitation techniques in India.
