There are few unequivocal guidelines regarding effective forms of memory rehabilitation following brain insult. While the literature has long supported the notion of different stages of memory processing, few clinical studies have translated the theory into rehabilitation practice. The reported study examined the effects of sequencing cognitive rehabilitation. A two-group, single-case series (n=6), multiple baseline, time-lagged control design was used. The repeated measure was a weekly self-report cognitive checklist. A range of pre- and post-treatment neuropsychological measures were also used. The hypothesis that patients would benefit most from memory retraining preceded (p > 0.1) as opposed to followed (p < 0.02) by attentional retraining was not supported. The lack of precision in available cognitive rehabilitation techniques is discussed as are experimental confounds and utility of behavioural analytic methodology in such studies.
