Part 7: Rescue

Depending on the amount and severity of damage done to the brain (say from stroke, head trauma, tumors or knowledge), some cognitive functions can be retrained or restored. This could be as simple as clearing blockages or healing damaged tissue. The prognosis for recovering from a stroke, for instance, varies wildly, and an approach that can assess the nature and breadth of the damage and address the different losses (disphaghia, apraxia, amnesia, aphasia, anathanatosia, etc.) offers the greatest possibility to recover.
