Introduction—The changing view of neurorehabilitation: A new era of optimism

  • LESLIE J. GONZALEZ ROTHI (a1) (a2) and ANNA M. BARRETT (a3) (a4)

Extract

Stroke is the leading health care problem requiring rehabilitation services today (CDC, 2001; Lee et al., 1996) with the worldwide incidence estimated to be between 300 and 500 per 100,000 people (Sudlow & Warlow, 1997). In most recent years, the rates of mortality are decreasing, resulting in a significant increase in the number of survivors living with the disabilities/handicaps associated with stroke (Thorvaldsen et al., 1997). Not only is stroke a common health problem, but the cognitive disorders that result are common as well (Mayo, 1993; Paolucci et al., 1996).This article is based in part on a Presidential Address by the first author to the Annual meeting of the International Neuropsychological Society in Honolulu, Hawaii in February, 2002.
