Network connectivity impairments lead to spatial neglect functional deficits after stroke

Takeaway

  • Attention and motor network impairments are associated with spatial neglect functional deficits post-stroke.

Why this matters

  • Spatial neglect after stroke is associated with poor spatial performance and functional disability; this study suggests that network impairments account for spatial neglect motor and attention deficits, thus, implementing spatial retraining during stroke rehabilitation may improve function.
