I wish the very best of luck to Jon and all the other people who make this journal what it is” Barbara Wilson.
“I’d like to pay tribute to Barbara as an outstanding leader – indeed creator – of an entirely new approach to neuropsychological rehabilitation. She has an incredible ability to condense complex ideas into practical solutions that provide real help for patients and their families. She has been an outstanding colleague and a wonderful editor.
