Functional potential in chronic stroke patients depends on corticospinal tract integrity.
Determining whether a person with stroke has reached their full potential for recovery is difficult. While techniques such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and MRI have some prognosticExpand

Converging Evidence for a Fronto-Basal-Ganglia Network for Inhibitory Control of Action and Cognition
Imagine you are at an intersection, waiting for the traffic lights. They turn green, and you are about to press the gas pedal, when suddenly a cyclist swerves into your lane. Before your foot hasExpand

The PREP algorithm predicts potential for upper limb recovery after stroke.
Stroke is a leading cause of adult disability and the recovery of motor function is important for independence in activities of daily living. Predicting motor recovery after stroke in individualExpand

Intracortical inhibition during volitional inhibition of prepared action.
Volitional inhibition is the voluntary prevention of a prepared movement. Here we ask whether primary motor cortex (M1) is a site of convergence of cortical activity associated with movementExpand

Responding with Restraint: What Are the Neurocognitive Mechanisms?
An important aspect of cognitive control is the ability to respond with restraint. Here, we modeled this experimentally by measuring the degree of response slowing that occurs when people respond toExpand

Carbohydrate in the mouth immediately facilitates motor output
The presence of carbohydrate in the mouth can immediately improve physical performance. How this occurs is not well understood. Here we used transcranial magnetic stimulation of primary motor cortexExpand

BACKGROUND Stroke is a leading cause of disability. The ability to live independently after stroke depends largely on the reduction of motor impairment and the recovery of motor function. AccurateExpand

Proportional recovery after stroke depends on corticomotor integrity
For most patients, resolution of upper limb impairment during the first 6 months poststroke is 70% of the maximum possible. We sought to identify candidate mechanisms of this proportional recovery.Expand

Kinesthetic, but not visual, motor imagery modulates corticomotor excitability
The hypothesis that motor imagery and actual movement involve overlapping neural structures in the central nervous system is supported by multiple lines of evidence. The aim of this study was toExpand

Contralesional hemisphere control of the proximal paretic upper limb following stroke.
Cathodal transcranial direct current stimulation (c-tDCS) can reduce excitability of neurons in primary motor cortex (M1) and may facilitate motor recovery after stroke. However, little is knownExpand
