Cognitive Plasticity in Neurologic Disorders

Edited by Joseph I Tracy, Benjamin M Hampstead, and K. Sathian

  • Unlike many books on neural repair and plasticity, this volume does not discuss neurobiologic change and neural reorganization without making connections to cognitive or behavioral processes that may be both a cause and an effect of such neural reorganization.
  • Unlike existing texts, the emphasis is consistently placed on the dynamic and potentially changing aspects of these abnormalities and the degree to which these abnormalities set off or inhibit neuroplastic responses, describing the cognitive processes and effects that emerge because of the changing neurobiologic context.
  • The book provides an excellent up-to-date summary of the literature on neuroplasticity, cognitive reorganization, and recovery in each of the disorders and syndromes, specifying the neuroplastic responses and cognitive mechanisms unique to the disorder, distinguishing between those which foster or inhibit recovery and response to treatment.
