Abstract

Cognitive rehabilitation is as a systematic, functionally oriented service of therapeutic activities that is based on assessment and understanding of the patient's brain-behavioral deficits. Multiple approaches exist with different goals, depending on patient characteristics and the methodology used. While there has been increasing interest in cognitive rehabilitation for brain tumor (BT) patients and limited data are available for epilepsy patients, at present there are no data on the effects of cognitive rehabilitation for patients with brain tumor-related epilepsy (BTRE). This chapter focuses on the results of cognitive rehabilitation in either BT patients or patients with epilepsy in order to draw implications for future research on BTRE in this area.
