Neuroscience: Fundamentals for Rehabilitation
This practical guide to clinically significant neuroscience, written with rehabilitation professionals in mind, connects neuroscience theory to clinical application with stories written by real people with neurological disorders, case studies, and lists summarizing key features of neurological disorders. Numerous tables, flow charts and boxes highlight essential concepts, processes, and relationships. Full-color illustrations, including an atlas, clarify the spatial relationships among neural structures, demonstrate pathological neural changes, and show individuals with various neurological disorders. Unique features include an accurate summary of contemporary research and theory on spasticity and a thorough explanation of vestibular function and dysfunction. The book follows a logical progression from the molecular and cellular level to systems and regions, making the text both comprehensive and useful.
