Neural Plasticity

The Effects of Environment on the Development of the Cerebral Cortex
Neural plasticity—the brain’s ability to change in response to normal developmental processes, experience, and injury—is a critically important phenomenon for both neuroscience and psychology. Increasing evidence about the extent of plasticity—long past the supposedly critical first three years—has recently emerged. Neural Plasticity offers the first succinct and lucid integration of this research and its implications.

This outstanding new handbook offers unique coverage of all aspects of neuropsychological rehabilitation. Compiled by the world’s leading clinician-researchers, and written by an exceptional team of international contributors, the book is vast in scope, including chapters on the many and varied components of neuropsychological rehabilitation across the life span within one volume.

New and emerging approaches such as brain training and social robotics are also considered, alongside an extensive section on rehabilitation around the world, particularly in under-resourced settings. The final section offers some general conclusions and an evaluation of the key issues in this important field.
