Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

Mental practice (MP) increases upper-extremity function poststroke. However, whether there is a MP practice effect is unknown. In our study, one group underwent a massed MP intervention, and the second group underwent distributed MP. Results indicate that distributed MP may be more efficacious than massed practice.
