Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The acute management of stroke has dramatically improved over the past few years, thus contributing to a reduction in case fatality. However, stroke remains a leading cause of handicap worldwide. Clinicians are confronted with stroke survivors who may present with a variety of disabilities, including fatigue, anxiety, depression, behavioral changes, or cognitive impairment, even when their global outcome was regarded as favorable. Although less visible than motor sequelae, these symptoms have a negative impact on patients’ quality of life. A better understanding of the epidemiology, contributing factors, and underlying mechanisms of these symptoms is needed so as to develop innovative dedicated preventive and therapeutic strategies.

This Special Issue aims to cover these different aspects of non-motor post-stroke disability. We invite researchers to contribute original and review articles based on observational or interventional clinical studies as well as experimental works, to enhance our understanding of non-motor functional disability after stroke.
