This book is based on invited review lectures given at the European Brain and Behavior Society's Workshop on Recovery of Function Following Brain Damage, London, England, in April 1991. There are 11 chapters covering both basicand human research. The chapters vary in quality and ease of reading.

The first chapter, by D. Stein and M. Glasier, provides an excellent overview of the history of and developments in research on recovery from brain injury as well as succinctly describing the problems facing current researchers (eg, the definition of "recovery of function," distinguishing between "restitution" and "substitution"). This chapter provides information that all neurologists would find useful and interesting. The final chapter (by the editors) serves a similar purpose, is also quite well done, and argues for better collaboration between researchers in the field.
