Treatment is defined as an application of a technique or set of techniques, most often by a professional, which is intended to relieve a health problem. Similar terms are: therapy, rehabilitation and remediation. In the context of neuropsychology, common terms are:
- cognitive rehabilitation
- cognitive training / cognitive retraining
- cognitive remediation
Many of these terms are synonymous, or overlap, and depend on the condition that it is applied to.
