This chapter provides a general overview of cognition, and relevant models of information processing to facilitate decision-making and acting with regard to rehabilitation medicine. Perceptual disorders are discussed, and factors that may cause them to arise are covered. Attention is also described, including key terminology, and memory structure and forms are covered. High-level cognitive processes are described, and then applied to rehabilitation approaches (both remedial and compensatory). General background to behaviour, learning theory, management, and treatment approaches are all discussed, including cognitive behavioural therapy. Finally, pharmaceutical management to modify behaviour is covered.
