Abstract/OtherAbstract:
To find out if patients with right hemisphere strokes (RHD) demonstrate a form of progressive or incremental limb hypometria (ILH), 11 RHD patients and eight matched controls were tested by having them draw a series of horizontal lines while blindfolded. Unlike controls, six RHD patients displayed an incremental decrease in the length of lines they drew, a sign of ILH. ILH might be a common source of disability and hinder rehabilitation efforts.
