Encephalitis - inflammation of the brain - has significant cognitive, behavioural and emotional consequences. This special edition describes the pathway of recovery following encephalitis, from medical management to assessment, rehabilitation and community support and advocacy. The neuropsychological and neuropsychiatric outcomes of encephalitis in both adult and paediatric populations are described, in addition to a number of rehabilitation studies which aim to increase the functional independence and psychosocial adjustment of survivors of this rare neurological condition.
