BACKGROUND Action observation (AO) has the potential to improve motor imagery (MI) practice in stroke patients. However, currently only a few results are available on how to use AO effectively. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to investigate whether MI practice can be improved more effectively by synchronous AO than by asynchronous AO. METHODS Ten patients with upper limb motor dysfunction following stroke were selected as the participants. They were divided into two groups to perform MI… CONTINUE READING
