Motor Changes Associated With Recovery From Stroke After Therapy
Launched by NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS AND STROKE (NINDS) · Dec 9, 2002
Current as of December 03, 2023
We have been interested in the study of plastic changes associated with recovery of motor function in humans after a variety of lesions in the central (spinal cord injury) and peripheral nervous system (amputation, reversible deafferentation) and motor learning. At present, mechanisms underlying recovery of motor function after stroke are poorly understood. Little and inconsistent information is available about the specific brain regions newly recruited in patients with chronic ischemic subcortical stroke after reacquisition of use of the affected limb. Recently, a new set of techniques pr...
- Patients with stroke more than 1 year before testing.
- Patients with right cortico-subcortical strokes will be included.
