Comparing Prism Adaptation Therapy and Bromocriptine Medication for Spatial Neglect: Theoretical and Practical Outcomes

2014-08-27 03:18:53 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this research study is to examine the effects of prism adaptation or bromocriptine treatment on two visual-spatial recovery components. After a stroke, an "internal GPS", locating where objects or people lie in a particular area of space, may be impaired. Alternately, a stroke may impair precise visual-spatial hand and body aiming movements. The research team wishes to discover whether using prism goggles, or taking a medication (bromocriptine) affects visual-spatial where or aiming errors selectively after stroke.

This research represents one of the first attempts to apply what we know about the brain from neuroscience research, to modern clinical rehabilitation practices.

Frontal lesions predict response to prism adaptation treatment in spatial neglect: A randomised controlled study.

Spatial neglect commonly follows right hemisphere stroke. It is defined as impaired contralesional stimulus detection, response, or action, causing functional disability. While prism adaptation treatm...

Role of a Standardized Prism Under Cover Test in the Assessment of Dissociated Vertical Deviation.

Dissociated vertical deviation (DVD) is commonly measured using a prism and alternate cover test (PACT), but some providers use a prism under cover test (PUCT). The aim of this study was to compare a ...

Cabergoline-induced fibrosis of prolactinomas: a neurosurgical perspective.

Presently, the standard of care for prolactinomas, a type of pituitary adenoma, is dopaminergic agents such as bromocriptine and cabergoline. However, dopaminergic agents may induce fibrosis of cardia...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The interference of one perceptual stimulus with another causing a decrease or lessening in perceptual effectiveness.

A dopamine agonist and serotonin antagonist. It has been used similarly to BROMOCRIPTINE as a dopamine agonist and also for MIGRAINE DISORDERS therapy.

Cognitive disorders characterized by an impaired ability to perceive the nature of objects or concepts through use of the sense organs. These include spatial neglect syndromes, where an individual does not attend to visual, auditory, or sensory stimuli presented from one side of the body.

A perceptual phenomenon used by Gestalt psychologists to demonstrate that events in one part of the perceptual field may affect perception in another part.

Disorders of hearing or auditory perception due to pathological processes of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. These include CENTRAL HEARING LOSS and AUDITORY PERCEPTUAL DISORDERS.
