improvement. An interesting study would be to correlate the Super Memory ( Herrmann, 1991) self-report questionnaires with Rivermead subtests. Comparisons with populations who have had memory impairment due to other environmental and workplace toxins would be of interest.


CONCLUSION

There has been little work done on the rehabilitation of the TE population. The symptoms found in this group include memory impairment as well as a host of emotional and somatic complaints. A multimodal approach to memory improvement that views memory processing as being interrelated with other psychological processing modes provides a highly relevant approach to rehabilitation. Intervention studies are needed in order to provide an adequate rehabilitation for the TE population, which can alleviate symptoms and enhance quality of life.
