Special Issue on Interactions of Cognition with Movement and Rehabilitation
Global cognition, as well as specific domains such as attention, memory and executive function, have been largely ignored within cohort studies and clinical trials of motor control and rehabilitation. While motor studies often use cognitive screening tools, (e.g. MoCA, MMSE), a deeper dive into specific cognitive domains is rare, despite many neurologic diagnoses having both cognitive and motor symptoms. This special issue will feature recent advances in cognitive assessment, cognitive impairments, and cognitive therapies, and how they may interact with or give insights into motor rehabilitation.
Impact of COVID-19 on the rehabilitation of people with neurological health conditions
Evidence is increasing that in addition to pulmonary complications, the SARS CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19, may negatively impact the nervous system as well. Rehabilitation strategies need to be adapted for people with neurological conditions and concomitant COVID-19. These issues and others warrant the production and dissemination of scholarly work to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on the rehabilitation of people with neurological health conditions. As the official journal of The Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy of the American Physical Therapy Association, the Journal of Neurological Physical Therapy seeks submission of manuscripts related to the physical therapy and rehabilitation management of patients with neurological disorders with concomitant COVID-19.
