  • Annals of neurology
  • 1 March 2008
Stroke remains a leading cause of adult disability. Some degree of spontaneous behavioral recovery is usually seen in the weeks after stroke onset. Variability in recovery is substantial across humanExpand

A functional MRI study of subjects recovered from hemiparetic stroke.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Stroke recovery mechanisms remain incompletely understood, particularly for subjects with cortical stroke, in whom limited data are available. We used functional magneticExpand

A Standardized Approach to Performing the Action Research Arm Test
The study of stroke and its treatment in human subjects requires accurate measurement of behavioral status. Arm motor deficits are among the most common sequelae after stroke. The Action Research ArmExpand

Robot-based hand motor therapy after stroke.
Robots can improve motor status after stroke with certain advantages, but there has been less emphasis to date on robotic developments for the hand. The goal of this study was to determine whether aExpand

Activation of distinct motor cortex regions during ipsilateral and contralateral finger movements.
Previous studies have shown that unilateral finger movements are normally accompanied by a small activation in ipsilateral motor cortex. The magnitude of this activation has been shown to be alteredExpand

Harnessing neuroplasticity for clinical applications
Neuroplasticity can be defined as the ability of the nervous system to respond to intrinsic or extrinsic stimuli by reorganizing its structure, function and connections. Major advances in theExpand

Brain activation during execution and motor imagery of novel and skilled sequential hand movements
This experiment used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to compare functional neuroanatomy associated with executed and imagined hand movements in novel and skilled learning phases. WeExpand
