Abstract

Research into stroke rehabilitation is an active area of investigation, and ample evidence suggests that patients with moderate deficits benefit from focused rehabilitation programs. Increasing age, stroke severity, and neuropsychological deficits are associated with a poor outcome. In this review we will discuss the most recent literature on stroke rehabilitation, with special emphasis on outcome predictors, motor recovery, and therapeutic strategies for aphasia and neuropsychological deficits.
