Názov: Focus on attention: cognitive performance of patients after stroke

Termín: 21.3.2017, 16:30 hod., I/9


Cognitive impairment is a common consequence of acute cerebrovascular accident (stroke). In the talk, we will more specifically focus on three particular aspects of cognition, namely: attention, working memory and motor skills. We implemented computerized versions of standard psychological tests (lateralized attention network test, digit span and fine-motor redrawing task) adjusted for our experimental group of elderly people after stroke. To assess the effect of stroke itself, we administered the tests to an age-matched control group of healthy senior volunteers. This research is a part of a larger cooperative project which aims to find a link between daily cognitive performance of stroke patients and the previous night sleep profiles (sleep quality). At the end of the talk, preliminary results of the main project will be briefly summarized.
