BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Virtual reality (VR) is a new promising computer-assisted technology to promote motor recovery in stroke patients. VR-induced neuroplasticity supporting locomotor recovery is not known. We investigated the effects of VR intervention on cortical reorganization and associated locomotor recovery in stroke patients. METHODS Ten chronic(More)
OBJECTIVES Somatotopic arrangements of the corticospinal tract (CST) in the human brain have been generally elucidated; however, very little is known about the somatotopy at the medullary pyramid (MP). Using diffusion tensor tractography (DTT), we investigated the somatotopic arrangement of the CST at the MP in the normal human brain. METHODS We recruited(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, the measurement of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) was recommended as an alternative to fasting plasma glucose or oral glucose tolerance tests for diagnosing diabetes mellitus (DM). In this study, we analyzed HbA1c levels for diabetes mellitus screening in a Korean rural population. METHODS We analyzed data from 10,111 subjects from a(More)

PURPOSE Recovery mechanisms supporting upper extremity motor recovery following stroke are well established, but cortical mechanism associated with lower extremity motor recovery is unknown. The aim of this study was to assess cortical reorganization associated with lower extremity motor recovery in a hemiparetic patient. METHODS Six control subjects and(More)
Gene therapy has drawn significant attention as a potential method for treating both acute illnesses and chronic diseases. Current research efforts have focused on developing carriers that effectively compact and protect naked DNA, RNA and siRNA, which are rapidly degraded by enzymes in the blood. As an alternative to viral and polymeric carriers,(More)
OBJECTIVE Adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein (A-FABP) is a major cytoplasmic protein in adipocytes and macrophages and is closely associated with metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and atherosclerosis. Here, we investigated whether A-FABP was associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We(More)
OBJECTIVE Little is known about the cortical activation pattern of compensatory movement (CM) in stroke patients. We attempted to investigate the cortical activation pattern of compensatory movement in stroke patients, using functional MRI (fMRI). METHODS Eight hemiparetic stroke patients were recruited for this study. We measured the shoulder abduction(More)
Image classification is an enthusiastic research field where large amount of image data is classified into various classes based on their visual contents. Researchers have presented various low-level features-based techniques for classifying images into different categories. However, efficient and effective classification and retrieval is still a(More)
Little is known about the recovery mechanism of somatosensory function in thalamic hemorrhage. We investigated the recovery mechanism of somatosensory function, using functional MRI (fMRI) findings by proprioceptive input in chronic patients with thalamic hemorrhage. Eleven consecutive chronic patients with thalamic hemorrhage who showed severe(More)
