This chapter is divided into three parts. The first part is a brief summary of the points discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. It begins with a reiteration of the book’s view that in every area of cognitive neuropsychology there are preserved capacities of which the patients remain unaware until the evolutionary question of the possession and loss of awareness. The second part of the chapter, on the other hand, provides some challenges and problems that this study incurred which includes the definition of awareness itself, and the deliberate usage of folk psychological terminology. Several issues are presented as well and are discussed in detail in this chapter. Finally, the last part of this chapter, suggests on how the topic should be addressed in future research and development.

Keywords:   cognitive neuropsychology, loss of awareness, definition of awareness, folk psychological terminology
