The presence of aphasia following left hemisphere damage and of spatial neglect following right hemisphere damage are both associated with a significant negative impact on the functional outcome of stroke patients referred to rehabilitation. In aphasia, interpersonal variance in structure-function mapping, and findings related to pragmatics, points to exciting new options for rehabilitation research. In the case of neglect rehabilitation, promising novel options are pointed by experiments showing abolishment of neglect when spatial attention is modulated shortly after stimulus capture (at a stage where perceptual information is maintained in the iconic buffer) and by studies showing amelioration following electroencephalogram-biofeedback treatment aimed to enhance the level of arousal in perilesional cortex.
