Cognitive reserve impacts on disability and cognitive deficits in acute stroke.

Summary of "Cognitive reserve impacts on disability and cognitive deficits in acute stroke."

Although post-stroke cognitive deficit can significantly limit patient independence and social re-integration, clinical routine predictors for this condition are lacking. 'Cognitive reserve' limits the detrimental effects of slowly developing neurodegeneration. We aimed to determine whether comparable effects also exist in acute stroke. Using 'years of education' as a proxy, we investigated whether cognitive reserve beneficially influences cognitive performance and disability after stroke, whilst controlling for age and lesion size as measure of stroke pathology.
