Addiction is a persistent, compulsive dependence on a behavior or substance. The term has been partially replaced by the word dependence for substance abuse. Addiction has been extended, however, to include mood-altering behaviors or activities. Some researchers speak of two types of addictions: substance addictions (for example, alcoholism, drug abuse, and smoking); and process addictions (for example, gambling, spending, shopping, eating, and sexual activity). There is a growing recognition that many addicts, such as polydrug abusers, are addicted to more than one substance or process.

The field of neurorehabilitation is relatively new, and some cutting edge therapies, including neuromodulation, that may be potentially beneficial topatients with CNS injuries or other disorders, are currently being investigated. The advances in the understanding of brain circuitry, together with the development of neurostimulation technologies have prompted us to explore the potential of electrical stimulation of the nervous system to promote functional recovery in patients with CNS disorders. Overall, advances in neuromodulation may offer new therapeutic interventions for patients with stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and epilepsy by counteract the abnormal network in the brain.

The human motor system has the capacity to learn through practice and experience. Motor learning is a loosely defined term that encompasses motor adaptation, skill acquisition, and decision-making. Motor learning can be broken into kinematic and dynamic components. Animal models and functional imaging in humans show that the mature brain can undergo plastic changes during both learning and recovery. Quantitative motor control approaches allow differentiation between compensation and true recovery, although both improve with practice. Several promising new rehabilitation approaches are based on theories of motor learning

Scientists are using technology with neurorehabilitation to provide cutting edge improvements to therapies for patients with nervous system issues. The neurorehabilitation has undergone drastic changes over the last two decades due to the incorporation of computer and robotic electronic devices, designed to produce positive changes in cortical excitability of the cerebral hemisphere damaged and so to improve neuroplasticity. In particular, the use of robotics in neurorehabilitation is becoming more and more common. These devices and simulations, along with other robotic technology, offer patients who have just had strokes, other brain or spinal cord injuries the option of training and physical therapy much sooner than might otherwise be possible, thus shortening the recovery period.

A case report is a detailed report of the symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of an individual patient. Case reports can also play a relevant role in medical education, providing a structure for case-based learning and may also have a role to play in guiding the personalization of treatments in clinical practice.

The neuro-rehabilitation procedures now in use vary in rationale and strategy, with no evidence of differences in their therapeutic efficacy. Interacting robots and humans compensate reciprocally for their intrinsic limitations while benefitting from peculiar advantages. Reliability in the execution of repetitive tasks is high. In contrast, robots lack the flexibility and adaptation, code-independent communication, high-level information processing, and detection of and responsiveness to weak and otherwise undetected significant sensory inputs that characterize humans.

Orthotics plays an important role in the rehabilitation of patients with motor impairments. In the advancement of prosthetic systems, one feels that distributed sensory architectures are research areas of critical importance.
