Effect of cognitive rehabilitation in a case of thalamic astrocytoma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We describe the effectiveness of rehabilitative training for a neuropsychological deficit following the removal and treatment of a fibrillary astrocytoma (Grade II) in a young man. The rehabilitative training was based on cognitive and motivational techniques and has been carried out for a period of 3 months (2 times per week). The results, even if limited to a single case, seem to support the idea that cognitive rehabilitation should facilitate the brain's reorganization of basic cognitive functions in the neuro-oncologic field.
