Preview

• The human brain has the unique ability to react adaptively to environmental changes, as well as to brain lesions. This ability is called cerebral plasticity. • Neurorehabilitation is a multi-step process focusing on restoration or compensation of basal activities of daily living, and on psychosocial and community reintegration of the individual. • Accordingly, future development of neurorehabilitation will be based on systematically evaluated methods, as well as on very individualized social reintegration.
