Abnormal neuropsychiatric disorder
In traumatic brain injury, cognitive processes can also be significantly damaged, but later it can be partially restored.
Neurological disorders are the result of damage or degeneration of the brain due to disease or trauma. This chapter focuses on the consequences of three disorders resulting from two diseases: Alzheimer's (AD) and multiple sclerosis (MS) and traumatic brain injury. In the case of AD and MS, therapy is aimed at maintaining cognitive function, minimizing the effects of the disease. In traumatic brain injury, cognitive processes can also be significantly damaged, but later it can be partially restored. The intervention here focuses on maximizing recovery and helping the individual deal with cognitive sequelae. After reading the chapter you should know:
Neurological processes due to AD and MS.
Psychological consequences of these diseases.
The intervention aims at both: maintaining and improving cognitive function, maintaining the best condition in the progression of the disease.
Immediate and long-term consequences of traumatic brain injury.
Use interventions to maximize recovery after traumatic brain injury.
