The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of stroke patients' cognitive score on their the activities of daily living. The subjects of this study were 30 stroke patients who were admitted to T$\breve{a}$e-Bong hospital from November, 2002 to March, 2003. The subjects were administerd an MMSE as a cognitive assessment and an MBI as a functional assessment upon referral to physical therapy initially. The results were as follows: 1. The MMSE scores for the stroke patients were related to the patients' abilities to perform their activities of daily living. The changes of MBl scores significantly correlated with the changes of MMSE scores (p<.05). 2. The subjects with left hemispheric lesion scored higher in MMSE than those with right hemispheric lesions (p<.05). 3. The hemispheric lesions did not significantly affect the activities of daily living score (p>.05).
