Aim: To compare the cognitive communicative performance of Stroke subjects with that of normal subjects and to compare the cognitive communicative performance across stroke subgroups of cortical lesion and subcortical lesion.
Materials and Method: A total of 30 subjects participated in this study. Among 30 subjects, 15 subjects with stroke (experimental group) and 15 subjects with age matched normal adults (control group) were taken. Among experimental group, 7 had cortical and 8 had subcortical lesion. Scale of Cognitive and Communicative Ability for Neurorehabilitation (SCCAN) test was administered to all the subjects.
Results: The stroke subject as a group performed significantly poorer when compared to that of normal aging adults. The performance of subjects with stroke was more impaired on memory scale compared to other scales of SCCAN. The performance of subjects within the stroke showed that subjects with subcortical stroke performed poorer when compared to the subjects with cortical stroke.
Conclusion: This study highlights on nature of cognitive communicative deficits in stroke individuals.
