Abstract: This paper presents a neuropsychological assessment and intervention protocol for a fictitious case, based on a real 52-year-old patient, who suffered a predominantly left bilateral frontal injury due to a stroke due to a ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysm (ACA). In the initial neuropsychological assessment, it can be evidenced a major neurocognitive disorder, finding alterations at different levels: attentional (selective and alternating attention, and processing speed); mnesic (verbal short-term and long-term memory); executive (different components of executive function); and emotional and behavioral, characterized by symptoms of apathy and disinhibition secondary to executive dysfunction, and anosognosia; with a consequent compromise on the functionality of the patient in their instrumental activities of daily life. Thus, the general objective of the intervention will be based on achieving the maximum restoration and compensation of the cognitive function, and on the approach of the emotional and behavioral function, which compromise the patient's functionality regarding the activities of daily living and their quality of life. For this purpose, a 5-month neuropsychological intervention is proposed, with 3 weekly sessions of 45 minutes, of which 2 sessions will be aimed at the rehabilitation of cognitive functions, and 1 will be aimed at psychoeducation, psychotherapy for emotional symptoms and behavior, and training in compensation strategies.
