Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This pilot study investigated the effects of mantra meditation on attention and related daily life participation after stroke. The primary outcome was attention measured with a computerized neuropsychological test. Primary data indicated an effect for one subject only. More research on what client factors or other variables may influence attention- and participation-related outcomes of mantra meditation will lay groundwork for clinical translation studies of this intervention.
