Cognitive defi cits are prevalent at the acute stage of stroke (Jaillard, Naegele, TrabuccoMiguel, LeBas, & Hommel, 2009). They interfere with the potential benefi ts of rehabilitation and affect recovery (Ballard et al., 2003; Barker-Collo & Feigin, 2006; de Haan, Nys, & van Zandvoort, 2006; Donovan et al., 2008; Edwards et al., 2006; Fure, Bruun Wyller, Engedal, & Thommessen, 2006; Narasimhalu et al., 2009; Nys et al., 2006; Pohjasvaara et al., 2000; Stephens et al., 2005; van Zandvoort, Kessels, Nys, de Haan, & Kappelle, 2005; Zinn et al., 2004). Moreover, cognitive defi cits are associated with a poorer quality of life (Moon, Kim, Kim, Won, & Kim, 2004; Nichols-Larsen, Clark, Zeringue, Greenspan, & Blanton, 2005; Paul et al., 2005) and depression (Kauhanen et al., 1999; Nys et al., 2006).
