520    This book provides a comprehensive, practical, and timely 
       guide to neurorehabilitation for patients affected by 
       tumors of the central nervous system. These patients 
       encounter various physical and psychosocial impairments, 
       due to sensory-motor, psychological and cognitive 
       limitations, as well as depression, anxiety and fatigue. 
       These common tumor and treatment consequences reduce 
       quality of life and produce long-term limitation in 
       functioning and disability that may benefit from 
       rehabilitative interventions. In the early stages of the 
       disease, rehabilitation aims at restoring functioning 
       after tumor treatment, while in the advanced stages, 
       rehabilitation becomes an integral part of palliative care,
       which aims to increase patients' independence, to prevent 
       complications and to improve quality of life. Based on an 
       interdisciplinary approach, the book is structured in two 
       main parts. The first is devoted to the basics of cancer 
       and to the main clinical features of the tumors of the 
       nervous system, as well as to the essentials of 
       therapeutic approaches. The second part is dedicated to 
       rehabilitation issues, providing the tools for health 
       personnel to take in charge persons affected by neuro-
       oncological disease. This unique volume is a valuable 
       resource for all health professionals (physicians, 
       psychologists, trainees nurses specialized in neuro-
       oncology, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, 
       speech therapists) involved in the interdisciplinary 
       management of individuals affected by tumors of the 
       central nervous system
