Abstract

Findings from several studies of stroke victims indicate that consistent negative predictors of outcome are significant perceptual or cognitive dysfunction, prior stroke, delay in initiating rehabilitation therapy, the presence of nystagmus, and poor motivation. Factors associated with a good prognosis after rehabilitation include early return of voluntary movements, bladder control, high intelligence and feeding skills. --
