BACKGROUND We hypothesized that there would be a good response to relative beta training, applied to regulate the dynamics of brain function in a patient with benign partial epilepsy with Rolandic Spikes (BPERS), associated with neuropsychiatric deficits resembling the symptoms of attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). CASE REPORT The patient,(More)
We examined the effectiveness of neurotherapy for chronic, impaired self-awareness and secondary ADHD (SADHD) diagnosed in the patient after severe TBI. We hypothesized a good response to relative beta training. Patient A.A., age 30, after severe TBI and long-term coma, suffered from chronic, impaired self-awareness and SADHD, manifesting two years post(More)
The aim of this review is to discuss the basic forms of neuropsychological rehabilitation for patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). More broadly, we discussed cognitive rehabilitation therapy (CRT) which constitutes a fundamental component in therapeutic interaction at many centres worldwide. Equally presented is a comprehensive model of(More)
Despite recent interest in the brain/mind problem and the possible organic correlates of mental disease, relatively few case studies have examined the problem concretely. This article examines the effectiveness of neurotherapy for a 68-year-old male schizophrenic patient whose psychotic symptoms displayed qualitative and quantitative changes after a(More)
AIM One of the applications of the Neurofeedback methodology is peak performance in sport. The protocols of the neurofeedback are usually based on an assessment of the spectral parameters of spontaneous EEG in resting state conditions. The aim of the paper was to study whether the intensive neurofeedback training of a well-functioning Olympic athlete who(More)
BACKGROUND Dysarthia is a common sequela of cerebral palsy (CP), directly affecting both the intelligibility of speech and the child's psycho-social adjustment. Speech therapy focused exclusively on the articulatory organs does not always help CP children to speak more intelligibly. The program of art therapy described here has proven to be helpful for(More)
INTRODUCTION The paper presents an example of the successful administration of the Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) system. Such an approach is of particular significance in cases of patients with speech and language deterioration, which is observed in a nonfluent/agrammatic variant of primary progressive aphasia (PPA-G). Regaining the(More)
BACKGROUND Difficulties in self-care constitute a very common problem for patients recovering from prolonged coma after a severe TBI, and a major factor reducing their quality of life. Effective new rehabilitation programs that would help solve this problem are urgently needed. The purpose of our experiment was to evaluate improvement in this respect in a(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the research was to evaluate the effectiveness of the phased rehabilitation program in patients after traumatic brain injury, one developed by the authors and controlled by the strategic plan, pertaining to their quality of life compared to patients treated according to a standard, phased rehabilitation program.
