Recovery after stroke; malingering after concussion

Recovery after stroke; malingering after concussion

Derick Wade (professor and consultant in neurological rehabilitation at the Oxford Centre for Enablement) and Nick Ward (JNNP associate editor and reader in clinical neurology at UCL) discuss the past, present and future of measuring and predicting recovery after stroke.And poor effort, exaggeration and malingering can be used to explain why individuals post-concussion report persistent symptoms inconsistent with the severity of their injury. However Jonathan Silver (clinical professor of Psychiatry at New York University School of Medicine) writes in August’s JNNP that social psychology and behavioural economics reveal other factors. Killian Welch (consultant neuropsychiatrist in Edinburgh, UK) discusses them with him.See also:Functional abilities after stroke: measurement, natural history and prognosis, exaggeration and malingering after concussion
