Cognitive Rehabilitation and Neuroimaging - Examining the Evidence from Brain to Behavior

A man standing at a podium and speaking into a microphone “Cognitive Rehabilitation and Neuroimaging: Examining the Evidence from Brain to Behavior” – a new text by Kessler Foundation’s experts

Cognitive deficits are a major challenge to individuals, their caregivers, and their health care providers. A new text focuses on the efficacy of cognitive rehabilitation across a variety of neurological conditions, with specific emphasis on treatment-related changes in the brain detectable via neuroimaging.

In this episode of Kessler Foundation’s Fast Take podcast series, lead author John DeLuca, PhD, Senior Vice President of Research and Training, highlights the usefulness of the text for professionals in clinical and research settings. “By enabling us to examine brain processes and correlate them with behavior and anatomical structures, neuroimaging is advancing our ability to manage the cognitive effects of aging, stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and multiple sclerosis. Incorporating neuroimaging in clinical trials will hasten progress toward establish Class I evidence for new treatments.”

Published in October 2020 by Springer International Publishing, Cognitive Rehabilitation and Neuroimaging: Examining the Evidence from Brain to Behavior is available in print and eBook.
