Study Summary

This trial is investigating whether motor learning can help improve sensorimotor function after a stroke. The visuomotor learning task is being used to treat stroke patients in this trial, with no placebo group. This task has been previously approved by the FDA for a different condition.

Eligible Conditions

  • Sensorimotor Impairment
  • Stroke
