For the first time in the country, a specialized brain and cognition center was launched by the Tehran-based Iran University of Medical Sciences and the national Institute of Cognitive Sciences, said Dr Peiman Abharian, head of the center. “Provision of psychometric and psychological services, cognitive rehabilitation, and conduct of neurology and psychology researches are the center’s main responsibilities,” IRNA quoted him as saying. Cognitive rehabilitation is a program to help brain-injured or otherwise cognitively impaired individuals to restore normal functioning, or to compensate for cognitive deficits. It entails an individualized program of specific skills training.
