"At last a book that succinctly covers the opportunities for restorative recovery following stroke. Written in accessible language this book provides a comprehensive overview of the neuroscience literature. It is an essential addition to the bookshelf of any stroke clinician who strives to provide the best care to their patients." -- Professor Marion Walker, Professor of Stroke Rehabilitation, Associate Director UK Stroke Research Network, Division of Rehabilitation and Ageing, University of Nottingham Medical School, UK"Rehabilitation needs a sound theoretical basis. This book provides an exciting and up-to-date review of evidence to develop a sound platform for a rational rehabilitation. Although based on stroke, which is probably the disorder with the best evidence base, the principles developed in this book will apply to other neurological problems and they will indeed be relevant across all rehabilitation. Finally this book will arouse and maintain the reader's interest in the clinical phenomena seen in patients after stroke because it will explain the how and why of the patient's experience." -- Prof Derick Wade, MA, MB, BChir, FRCP, MD, Professor of Neurological Rehabilitation, Department of Clinical Neurology, University of Oxford and Consultant in Neurological Rehabilitation, Oxford Centre for Enablement, Oxford UK"The role of neuroplasticity in recovery of function in stroke rehabilitation has faced uncertainty with evolving evidence of the influence of varying therapy approaches. Leanne Carey's book provides a thorough review of the literature concerning neuronal recovery and provides compelling evidence for a more restorative paradigm of therapy delivery. This well written book will be valuable asset to challenge the thinking and influence service provision of clinicians involved in neurorehabilitation." -- John Olver MBBS, MD (Melb), FAFRM (RACP), Medical Director, Rehabilitation, Epworth HealthCare and Victor Smorgon Chair of Rehabilitation, Monash University - Epworth HealthCare, Melbourne, Australia "At last a book that succinctly covers the opportunities for restorative recovery following stroke.
