“Rehabilitating and (Re-)Training the Injured Brain” features approaches to brain training that aim to rehabilitate or remediate cognitive functions in acquired brain injury. It looks at the different approaches based on the type of injury and any additional benefits that may occur. The chapter sketches out methods to restore typical function by activating or stimulating relevant neural networks. Such techniques may help to overcome challenges related to rehabilitation using tools such as neural imaging and non-invasive stimulation. The focus of this chapter is on scientific research and empirical findings, but historical and cultural contexts that shroud these technological and clinical developments are also highlighted.
