Assessing and treating the diffuse lesion of traumatic brain injury: neuroimaging, neuropsychology, and neurorehabilitation

In this talk, I will demonstrate how diffuse damage due to TBI and other conditions gives rise to common behavioural deficits involving attention and executive functions, often with substantial consequences for everyday functioning. I will then describe an intervention, Goal Management Training® (GMT), that provides practical, standardized, and theoretically-grounded instructions for the rehabilitation of cognitive function in patients with executive impairment due to TBI and other conditions.
