Dual Task in Stroke Rehabilitation: The Ability Network lecture

October 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

What keeps a person from recovering automatic function (automaticity, procedural memory) after stroke? You do. Yes, that’s right, many therapy approaches cause patients to be dependent on attention to function. “Move your right leg longer, heel strike, don’t lift your shoulder like that, get out of bed like this, kneep your knee from fully straightening…” Many of these cues generate increasing intrinsic (body-specific) attention, rather than extrinsic (goal based) attention. More importantly, the cues require learners to use the most-often impaired centers of stroke (motor cortex) than those more often preserved (basal ganglia and surrounding) where the procedural memories of walking, dressing, brushing your teeth, sit to stand, and more automatic movements both WERE and STILL ARE stored after stroke. Learn how to tap-into these in your rehabilitation programs, for their good!
