Stroke survivors may be saddled with an invisible disability known as spatial neglect – but a simple treatment offers significant improvement

Stroke survivors may be saddled with an invisible disability known as spatial neglect – but a simple treatment offers significant improvement

Stroke survivors often experience spatial neglect, an underdiagnosed condition impairing their ability to navigate their surroundings. In a new article for The Conversation, A.M. Barrett, MD, chair and professor of neurology, and Kevin Houston, OD, MSc, associate professor of neurology, highlight prism adaptation therapy as a promising treatment. This simple, effective therapy significantly improves patients' spatial awareness and independence.
