Neurological principles and rehabilitation of action disorders: rehabilitation interventions

Neurorehabil Neural Repair. 2011 Jun;25(5 Suppl):33S-43S. doi: 10.1177/1545968311410942.


This third chapter discusses the evidence for the rehabilitation of the most common movement disorders of the upper extremity. The authors also present a framework, building on the computation, anatomy, and physiology (CAP) model, for incorporating some of the principles discussed in the 2 previous chapters by Frey et al and Sathian et al in the practice of rehabilitation and for discussing potentially helpful interventions based on emergent neuroscience principles.
