This volume of self-selected papers recognises Professor Barbara
A. Wilson's major contribution to the study of neuropsychology.
Published over a 25-year period, the papers included here address
the assessment, treatment and evaluation of rehabilitation provided
to people who have memory difficulties arising from an injury or
illness affecting the brain.
This selection of papers includes work on errorless learning,
the natural history of the development of compensatory memory
systems, paging systems developed to enhance independent daily
living for memory impaired people and single-case experimental
designs to appraise the response of individual patients. The final

This book will be of great interest to clinical psychologists,
neuropsychologists, occupational therapists and speech and language
therapists, along with anyone who is interested in reducing the
impact of memory problems on people who have suffered brain
