Give your students a complete understanding of rehabilitation planning and management! Neuroscience: Fundamentals for Rehabilitation, 5th Edition provides a practical guide to the nervous system and how it affects the practice of physical and occupational therapy. Case studies and first-person stories from people with neurologic disorders make it easier for students to apply their knowledge to the clinical setting. New to this edition are new chapters on neuroanatomy imaging and neurologic examination techniques. Using evidence-based research, this text helps students understand neurologic disorders and learn to treat clients who have physical limitations due to nervous system damage or disease.

    • Logical, systems approach to neuroscience makes it easier to master complex information and provides a framework for conducting a neurologic examination and evaluation.
    • A clinical perspective of neuroscience is provided through case studies, personal stories written by patients, and summaries of key features of neurologic disorders and the body systems they affect. 
    • Five sectionsOverview of Neurology, Neuroscience at the Cellular Level, Development of the Nervous System, Vertical Systems, and Regions — first show how neural cells operate, and then allow you to apply your knowledge of neuroscience.
    • Emphasis on topics critical to physical rehabilitation includes coverage of abnormal muscle tone, chronic pain, control of movement, and differential diagnosis of dizziness.
    • Hundreds of color-coded illustrations show body structures and functions across systems.
    • Clinical Notes case studies demonstrate how neuroscience knowledge may be applied to clinical situations. 
    • Pathology boxes provide a quick summary of the features of neurologic disorders commonly encountered in rehabilitation practice.
    • New! Neuroimaging and Neuroanatomy Atlas chapter includes MRI and CT images. 
    • NEW! Neurologic Disorders and the Neurologic Examination chapter provides detailed descriptions and photographs of techniques.
    • NEW! Diagnostic Clinical Reasoning boxes help you develop the ability to recognize patterns of signs and symptoms associated with specific diagnoses.
    • NEW! Updated content reflects the most current research findings.
    • NEW! Reader-friendly approach converts long, technical chapters into smaller, more accessible chapters.
    • NEW! Reorganized chapters progress from the cellular view to the systems view to the regional view.
