Memory and Emotion in Acute and Chronic Phases of Cerebrovascular Accident "MEMOIRE ET EMO"

Completed

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

The purpose is to determine the relationship between anxiety and cognitive performances in patients with acute and chronic phases of cerebrovascular accident (CVA). Data from neuropsychological assessment concerning cognitive processes (working and episodic memory) sensitive to different dimensions of anxiety will be analyzed.
The secondary purpose is to evaluate how some neurological (hemispherical lateralization of lesions), psychological (depression) and demographic (quality of life) variables can increase the effects of different dimensions of anxiety on cognitive processes, during the acute and/or chronic phase of CVA.

Detailed Description

Data will be collected during usual neuropsychological evaluation and cerebral imagery examination (NIHSS, Rankin scale) of patients in acute (0-1 month) and chronic (6 months) phases of CVA.
