Cognitive Rehabilitation Task Force
The mission of the BI-ISIG Cognitive Rehabilitation Task Force is to advance scientific knowledge in the area of cognitive rehabilitation (CR), to develop and disseminate guidelines for clinical practice in CR based on scientific principles/knowledge, and to advocate for appropriate CR interventions for individuals with cognitive deficits due to acquired brain injury.
