Protocol publication

[…] Performance (number correct of answers) of all computer-based tasks and the attention test were analyzed using IBM SPSS Statistics 23. The analysis of the relationships between music and Gestalt perception, attention, categorization, and WM was based on a correlation analysis (Pearson, two-tailed, Bonferroni-corrected).To determine cut-off values for normal performance on newly designed cognitive tests (visual Gestalt perception, categorization and working memory tasks) the method suggested by Crawford , was used. By this method a test score of one individual patient can be compared to a group of healthy controls to determine a significant difference between the patient and the control group. [...] Lesion analysis was performed with MRI images obtained when patients were admitted to the stroke unit. MRIcron and the clinical toolbox of SPM served to delineate and normalize lesions of nineteen patients (Patient P12 only had a cCT measurement). The MNI Flair template brain was used for normalization. […]
