Abstract The aim was to examine the effects of computer-based cognitive rehabilitation of attention in work-active patients after stroke. The study included 11 patients treated as inpatients at the University Rehabilitation Institute, Republic of Slovenia, who were included in intensive selective attention training four times a week for 3 months. Each patient was assessed at the initial and the final rehabilitation stage with the TAP system (Test of Attentional Performance), alertness, and divided attention tasks. The results indicate a moderate to strong increase in performance on the divided attention test and a mild effect on the alertness test. Early cognitive rehabilitation of the attentional system can contribute toward recovery of divided attention in work-active patients after stroke.
