|Experimental: Experimental: Mental Practice Group||
Behavioral: Mental Practice Group
Patients are administered rehabilitative therapy targeting their affected arms on 3 days/week during a ten week period. Directly after the therapy session, they participate in targeted mental practice session in which they cognitively rehearse the movement that they just physically practiced.
|Active Comparator: Active Comparator: Active Control Group||
Behavioral: Active Control Group
Individuals assigned to this group are administrated rehabilitative therapy targeting their affected arms in half four increments, occurring 3 days/week for 10 weeks. They also are administered an intervention in which they listen to a relaxation tape and/or tapes in which they receive instructions on exercises and information on stroke care.
- Change in movement in the affected fingers and wrist as measured by the Action Research Arm Test [ Time Frame: 2-3 weeks before intervention; 1 week after intervention; 3 months after intervention ]This is a measure that examines the participant's ability to use the affected wrist and fingers to grasp, pinch, and grip small objects (i.e., fine motor skills). Gross movements(e.g., touching the top of the head using the affected arm) are also briefly examined. The investigator will measure changes in these abilities. We will do this by administering the measure before and after participation in the study to determine if a change occurred in patients' movement abilities.
