The Psychology Department at Wits will host Professor Barbara Wilson, clinical neuropsychologist to present this brain matters lecture.

Practising neuropsychologists working in adult brain injury rehabilitation use a range of theoretical approaches in their clinical work. In 2002, Professor Barbara Wilson of the Oliver Zangwill Centre, Cambridge UK, published a model of rehabilitation arguing that rehabilitation is one of many fields needing a broad theoretical base incorporating frameworks, theories and models from many different areas. This presentation considers some of the theories and models, which have had the most influence on the field of neuropsychological rehabilitation.

Wilson is a clinical neuropsychologist who has worked in brain injury rehabilitation for 40 years. She has won many awards for her work including an OBE for services to rehabilitation in 1998 and four lifetime achievement awards.
