  • Information


This special issue of Neuropsychological Rehabilitation brings together seven newly published studies from a range of invited international researchers in the fields of language and memory disorders and their rehabilitation.

The studies address a range of current themes within these fields.

Critical consideration is made of the concept of errorless learning in light of the current learning literature by Middleton & Schwartz.

Identification of a locus to an errorless learning advantage in non-clinical participants is provided by Anderson and colleagues.

Evaluations of errorless learning applied to a range of clinical presentations are provided, including semantic dementia (Jokel & colleagues), anomia in Alzheimer's disease (Noonan & colleagues), aphasia (Raymer & colleagues; Conroy & Scowcroft) and apraxia of speech (Whiteside & colleagues).

The breadth and depth of these studies offers an up-to-date and comprehensive account of research developments in errorless learning and rehabilitation of language and memory impairments.

They delineate some of the current critical theoretical-clinical issues through which we might optimise learning and rehabilitative efforts more fully. This book was originally published as a special issue of the journal Neuropsychological Rehabilitation.
