Abstract

Date Presented 3/31/2017

Stroke survivors can have spatial neglect and movement deficits. Few studies examine effects of spatial treatments on motor function or recruit people with multiple strokes. This study concluded that prism adaptation treatment is feasible and effective in improving spatial neglect and arm movement.
