This issue also includes additional terrific research articles. Rinaudo and colleagues investigated the effects of vestibulo-ocular reflex adaptation training for peripheral vestibular hypofunction using a double-blinded randomized controlled trial with crossover. Leavy and colleagues examined physical activity and perceived health changes during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic among people with Parkinson disease. Kim and colleagues measured corticospinal tract microstructure in chronic stroke with diffusion tensor tractography and assessed its ability to predict distal upper extremity responsiveness to motor practice. Moore and colleagues described the development, execution and outcomes of a clinical implementation plan for adoption of high-intensity gait training during inpatient stroke rehabilitation. Demartino and colleagues tested associations between manual dexterity and the level of paretic upper extremity use after stroke.

The ANPT Stroke SIG is interviewing the authors about this article as part of our podcast series. Handelzalts and colleagues examined gait spatiotemporal symmetry and variability measures after stroke, including comparison to control participants and associations with balance function.

Also be sure to check out the ANPT 2021 Annual Conference abstracts, the APTA 2021 Honors and Awards Recipients, the ANPT 2021 election results and the Promotion of Doctoral Studies Scholarship (PODS) awardees funded by ANPT.Congratulationsto all of the winners and awardees, including JNPT Associate Editor Teresa Jacobson Kimberley, who was honored as a Catherine Worthingham Fellow of the APTA.
