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.
