Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

We compared the effects of an external focus vs. internal focus of attention on upper-extremity motor training for people with stroke. Participants improved significantly over time, but there were no differences between the two groups. Practice intensity was more important than attentional focus during arm training.
