The purpose of this study is to investigate the extent to which cognitive ability and emotional health predict social participation poststroke for people with and without aphasia. Apathy was found to be an independent predictor of social participation. The results of this study indicate that apathy ought to be further investigated as its own, stand-alone predictor of social participation among the population with stroke and should be recognized and addressed in rehabilitation.
