Abstract

This paper presents preliminary data on the effects of physical exercise and virtual reality upon mood and cognition in severely brain injured adults. The work draws upon two established fields of experimental psychology, enriched environments and physical exercise, in order to propose a new orientation for neurological rehabilitation. The results will be discussed in relation to organisation and delivery of clinical services, and to the theoretical model of von Steinbuchel and Poppel (1993).
