  2. 2. Rehabilitation• becoming one of the major functions of neuropsychologists.• involves methods for retraining neural pathways to regain or improve neurocognitive functioning that has been diminished by disease or trauma 1. Assessment of the patient’s strengths and deficits is conducted. 2. A program of rehabilitation is developed.
  3. 3. 2 types of neuropsychological rehabilitation: – Restorative rehabilitation helps the patient recover brain functions that have been impaired. This approach is usually emphasized initially until it is evident that the patient has reached the level of functioning that the patient had before the injury. – Compensatory rehabilitation helps the patient cope with and compensate for impairments that are likely to be permanent.
  4. 4. General guidelines for formulating rehabilitationtask:1. It should include the impaired skill that one is tryingto reformulate.2. The therapist should be able to vary the task indifficulty.3. Task should be quantifiable.4. The task should provide immediate feedback to thepatient.5. The number of errors made by the patient shouldbe controlled.

  6. 6. Sports-related concussion
  7. 7. Forensic neuropsychology
  8. 8. Functional neuroimaging • use of neuroimaging technology to measure an aspect of brain function, often with a view to understanding the relationship between activity in certain brain areas and specific mental functions.
