The third of its kind to date, this comprehensive literature review updates clinical recommendations for cognitive rehabilitation of people with traumatic brain injury and stroke.

Additionally, evidence supports visuospatial rehabilitation after right-hemisphere stroke, and interventions for aphasia and apraxia after left-hemisphere stroke.
