This chapter discusses recovery from and treatment techniques for sensory perceptual disorders in the visual, somatosensory, and auditory modalities. There is growing evidence for the efficacy of cognitive rehabilitation in general, and visuoperceptual training in particular, for patients with brain damage. Systematic treatments of somatosensory dysfunctions are just developing, despite their frequency and relevance to the patient. Nevertheless, the techniques discussed provide promising approaches towards significant improvements to patients' disturbances.

Keywords:   visual disorders, somatosensory disorders, auditory disorders, cognitive rehabilitation, brain damage
