Neural Substrates for the Effects of Rehabilitative Training on Motor Recovery After Ischemic Infarct
TLDR
The results suggest that, after local damage to the motor cortex, rehabilitative training can shape subsequent reorganization in the adjacent intact cortex, and that the undamaged motor cortex may play an important role in motor recovery. Expand
Use-dependent alterations of movement representations in primary motor cortex of adult squirrel monkeys
TLDR
The finding that cocontracting muscles in the behavior come to be represented together in the cortex argues that, as in sensory cortices, temporal correlations drive emergent changes in distributed motor cortex representations. Expand
Functional reorganization of the rat motor cortex following motor skill learning.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that motor skill learning is associated with a reorganization of movement representations within the rodent motor cortex. Expand
Extensive Cortical Rewiring after Brain Injury
TLDR
The results suggest that M1 injury results in axonal sprouting near the ischemic injury and the establishment of novel connections within a distant target, and support the hypothesis that, after a cortical injury, such as occurs after stroke, cortical areas distant from the injury undergo major neuroanatomical reorganization. Expand
Reorganization of movement representations in primary motor cortex following focal ischemic infarcts in adult squirrel monkeys.
TLDR
It is concluded that substantial functional reorganization occurs in primary motor cortex of adult primates following a focal ischemic infarct, but at least in the absence of postinfarct training, the movements formerly represented in the infarCTed zone do not reappear in adjacent cortical regions. Expand
Effects of Repetitive Motor Training on Movement Representations in Adult Squirrel Monkeys: Role of Use versus Learning
TLDR
It is concluded that repetitive motor activity alone does not produce functional reorganization of cortical maps and is proposed that motor skill acquisition, or motor learning, is a prerequisite factor in driving representational plasticity in M1. Expand
Role of adaptive plasticity in recovery of function after damage to motor cortex
TLDR
These findings have strong clinical relevance as it has recently been shown that after injury to the motor cortex, as might occur in stroke, post‐injury behavioral experience may play an adaptive role in modifying the functional organization of the remaining, intact cortical tissue. Expand
Can experiments in nonhuman primates expedite the translation of treatments for spinal cord injury in humans?
TLDR
Experiments in nonhuman primates expedite the translation of treatments for spinal cord injury in humans and show results that are similar to those in humans. Expand
Acoustic chiasm II: Anatomical basis of binaurality in lateral superior olive of cat
TLDR
The afferent projections to the lateral superior olive (LSO) were examined with horseradish peroxidase, horser Cousin‐2‐deoxyglucose methods, and tritiated leucine autoradiography and anterograde axonal degeneration methods. Expand
Reorganization of remote cortical regions after ischemic brain injury: a potential substrate for stroke recovery.
TLDR
It is suggested that neurophysiologic reorganization of remote cortical areas occurs in response to cortical injury and that the greater the damage to reciprocal intracortical pathways, the great the plasticity in intact areas. Expand
