    • Neglectin jälkeen voi kuntoutua ajokykyiseksi 

      Jehkonen, Mervi; Saunamäki, Tiia; Laihosalo, Mari; Alzamora, Anna-Kaisa; Kuikka, Pekka (2009)
      article
      Neglect on ehdoton ajokyvyn este. Häiriötila voi kuntoutua, mutta sen jäännösoireena voi ilmetä näönvaraisen tarkkaavuuden häiriö, visuaalinen inattentio, jonka merkitystä ajokyvyn kannalta ei ole toistaiseksi tutkittu. ...
    • Oikean aivopuoliskon verenkiertohäiriön jälkeen esiintyvä neglect-oire 

      Jehkonen, Mervi; Kettunen, Jani E; Laihosalo, Mari; Saunamäki, Tiia (2007)
      article
      Neglect eli huomiotta jääminen on tarkkaavuuden häiriö, jossa vaurioon nähden vastakkaisen kehonpuoliskon ja toimintatilan huomioiminen on puutteellista tai ei onnistu lainkaan. Sitä esiintyy yli 40 %:lla oikean aivopuoliskon ...
    • Predictors of Discharge to Home after Thrombolytic Treatment in Right Hemisphere Infarct Patients 

      Ruuskanen, Eija-Inkeri; Laihosalo, Mari; Kettunen, Jani E; Losoi, Heidi; Nurmi, L; Koivisto, Anna-Maija; Dastidar, Prasun; Ollikainen, Jyrki; Jehkonen, Mervi (2010)
      article
      Background: The aim of the study was to assess the association between thrombolysis and length of hospital stay after right hemisphere (RH) infarct, and to identify which cognitive functions were predictive of discharge. Methods: ...
    • Predictors of functional outcome after right hemisphere stroke in patients with or without thrombolytic treatment 

      Losoi, Heidi; Kettunen, Jani E; Laihosalo, Mari; Ruuskanen, Eija-Inkeri; Dastidar, Prasun; Koivisto, Anna-Maija; Jehkonen, Mervi (2011)
      article
      The purpose of this study was to assess the predictors of functional outcome after right hemisphere stroke at 6-month follow up in patients with or without thrombolytic treatment. Thrombolysis did not predict functional ...
    • Right hemisphere infarct patients and healthy controls: Evaluation of starting points in cancellation tasks 

      Nurmi, Laura; Kettunen, Jani; Laihosalo, Mari; Ruuskanen, Eija-Inkeri; Koivisto, Anna-Maija; Jehkonen, Mervi (2010)
      article
      Patients with visual neglect (VN) tend to start cancellation tasks from the right. This exceptional initial rightward bias is also seen in some right hemisphere (RH) stroke patients who do not meet the criteria of VN in ...
    • Rightward bias in right hemisphere infarct patients with or without thrombolytic treatment and in healthy controls 

      Kettunen, Jani E; Laihosalo, Mari; Ollikainen, Jyrki; Dastidar, Prasun; Nurmi, Laura; Koivisto, Anna-Maija; Jehkonen, Mervi (2011)
      article
      Right hemisphere (RH) infarct patients have a tendency to begin visual scanning from the right side of a given stimulus. Our aim was to find out whether RH patients with (T+) or without (T-) thrombolytic treatment and ...
    • Thrombolytic therapy and visuoperceptual functions in right hemisphere infarct patients 

      Laihosalo, Mari; Kettunen, Jani E; Koivisto, Anna-Maija; Dastidar, Prasun; Ollikainen, Jyrki; Jehkonen, Mervi (2011)
      article
