Abstract

Uzzell: Some concepts presented during this Conference include the recognition that: 1) theories about plasticity encompass individual differences in response to changes or demands within a particular context; 2) the effects of psychopharmacological agents are different for brain damaged and non-brain damaged individuals; 3) outcomes of cognitive rehabilitation are different for mild and severe head trauma; 4) 27% of the brain damaged population is not testable; and 5) recovery patterns among brain damaged individuals are inconsistent. However, rehabilitation of specialized programs have been shown to be cost-effective.
