Kessler Foundation Research Center Presented Two Studies on Post-stroke Spatial Neglect at American Academy of Neurology
Date:4/30/2009

ability to move within their environment, is impaired, individuals with spatial neglect make one-sided errors. Prism adaptation, a leading treatment in the field, uses optical lenses to help correct the errors caused by spatial neglect. Investigators at Kessler Foundation's Stroke Research Laboratory are studying which patients with spatial neglect may be most likely to benefit from prism adaptation.

"We are learning more every day about how to identify and work with hidden disorders of mental function after brain injury," said Anna M. Barrett, MD, director of the Stroke Research Laboratory and co-author of both studies. "These studies are a breakthrough in uncovering why prism adaptation treatment may work well for some patients, and some symptoms, and not as well on others." Targeting patients likely to respond may accelerate their recovery, minimize disability, and lessen the duration and cost of stroke rehabilitation.

One study, Prism Adaptation and Learning Curves in Spatial Neglect, by Kornitzer and colleagues, showed that after prism adaptation, some patients with spatial neglect did not exhibit a classic learning curve. Instead of the typical slow decline in error rates, some participants experienced widely fluctuating error rates. Screening patients for fluctuating errors might help identify candidates for this treatment. The second study, Effect of Prism Adaptation on "Aiming" Spatial Bias and Functional Abilities, by Fortis and colleagues, examined the effects of prism adaptation on two aspects of spatial neglect: 'aiming' bias (the ability to act in the environment) and 'where' bias (seeing or knowing where). Aiming bias improved with treatment; however, "where" bias, was negatively affected by the treatment. This finding may also aid in identifying which candidates, and which symptoms, will respond to prism adaptation.
