Frontotemporal brain areas become highly susceptible to brain damage because of brain anatomy and the blow/ counterblow effect from the TBI. This lesions, result in important cognitive impairments. The objective of this article consists on presenting the outcome of a rehabilitation program on a right frontotemporal TBI patient. A neuropsychological assessment was made before and after the treatment. The assessment consisted on a result merge from multiple tests. A regulation and control mechanism impairment was identified and the program was created accordingly. After the program was implemented, the patient was evaluated.
