  1. 1. Long-term functional outcome after ischemic stroke: : Prognostic value of early identification of neglect and aphasia

    University dissertation from Department of psychology : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Joel Gerafi; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Consciousness and Cognitive Neuroscience; Kognitiv neurovetenskap och filosofi; Stroke; Aphasia; Neglect; visuospatial inattention; language impairment; long-term functional outcome; ischemic stroke; neglect; aphasia;

    Abstract : Early symptoms of neglect and aphasia are often observed after ischemic stroke and have been associated with unfavorable short-term functional outcomes within one year post-stroke. However, there is a lack of studies with inclusion of both neglect and aphasia as potential predictors that have studied long-term functional outcomes exceeding one year after stroke. READ MORE

  2. 2. Visual and tactile neglect

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Haukur Hjaltason; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1997]

    Abstract : Neglect patients typically fail to report, respond, or orient to information presented in locations further away from the side of the brain lesion. Neglect is most often reported after acute stroke, and is more severe and more frequent after right hemisphere damage. READ MORE

  4. 4. Virtual Rehabilitation - Implications for Persons with Stroke

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Jurgen Broeren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; haptics; Neglect; Outcome Measures; Paresis; Rehabilitation; Stroke; Virtual Reality;

    Abstract : Aims: The purpose of this thesis was to investigate the effects of Virtual Reality technology and haptics for stroke rehabilitation. Aims were to assess motor training in the so called chronic phase after stroke and to evaluate whether any improvement detected in the VR environment is reflected in daily life. READ MORE

  5. 5. Stroke in geriatric patients - Aspects of depression, cognition and motor activity

    University dissertation from Med Clin, University Hospital of Lund

    Author : Berit Agrell; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stroke; laterality; rating scales; motoractivity; aphasia; neglect; disability; depression; cognition; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Six depression rating scales, GDS, Zung, CES-D, CPRS-D and Cornell, were compared in 40 patients. The validity was good for all scales except for the Cornell scale. A comprehensive investigation was done in 116 elderly stroke patients. There was no difference in prevalence and severity of post-stroke depression in relation to side of lesion. READ MORE
