Bibliographic details: Rees L, Marshall S, Hartridge C, Mackie D, Weiser M.  Cognitive interventions post acquired brain injury. Brain Injury 2007; 21: 161-200. [PubMed: 17364530]


OBJECTIVE: Cognitive rehabilitation represents a substantial portion of rehabilitative efforts put forth in increasing independence following an acquired brain injury.

MAIN OUTCOMES AND RESULTS: This review examined four major areas of cognitive therapy including: attention/concentration, learning and memory, executive functioning, and general cognitive rehabilitation approaches. In total, 64 studies were evaluated throughout the four major areas, which provided the evidence-base for 18 conclusions. The majority of the conclusions were based on moderate and limited evidence, however three strong and one conflicting conclusions were made.

CONCLUSIONS: Future research should explore functional outcome measures and long-term effects of treatment interventions through follow-up.

CRD has determined that this article meets the DARE scientific quality criteria for a systematic review.
