A concise and quick reference for the practitioner and student who are learning or reviewing the most relevant neuroscience principles supporting rehabilitation therapy. The updated third edition continues to meet a need in the rehabilitation profession that has gone unfilled - the ability to break down neuroscience information into the essential principles that can be used to understand neurological conditions and the principles underlying rehabilitation evaluation and practice. This fully-updated third edition provides a quick review of specific neuroscience concepts and principles that support rehabilitation interventions.

In this era of information overload, this text rapidly and thoroughly provides condensed information in a user-friendly, easy-to-use format for readers to review and convey relevant information to patients. Sharon Gutman has organised the text into three parts: the first addresses neuroanatomy; the second addresses the function of neurological systems underlying physical, psychiatric, cognitive, and visual perceptual disorders; and the final section addresses clinical neuropathology related to ageing, addiction, memory, and the neurological substrates of sex and gender. A specific section describes the common neurodiagnostic tests that therapists do not administer but must have knowledge of when results are discussed at treatment team meetings.

Features of the third edition:
  • Presented in a simple and organised bulleted format.
  • Large-scale colour illustrations to easily visualise neuroanatomical structures and systems.
  • Text boxes to apply key neuroscience concepts to the understanding of common neurological disorders and treatment.
  • Updated clinical test questions and glossary.

The third edition bridges a gap by quickly providing the rehabilitation professional with the most salient information needed to understand neurologic principles underlying rehabilitation practice.
