A Standardized Approach to Performing the Action Research Arm Test
TLDR
This report includes a manual that provides a highly detailed and standardized approach for assigning ARAT scores and shows that the ARAT, when performed in a standardized manner, is a useful tool for assessment of arm motor deficits after stroke. Expand
Guidelines for Adult Stroke Rehabilitation and Recovery: A Guideline for Healthcare Professionals From the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association
TLDR
This guideline provides a synopsis of best clinical practices in the rehabilitative care of adults recovering from stroke to reduce the risk of downstream medical morbidity resulting from immobility, depression, loss of autonomy, and reduced functional independence. Expand
A functional MRI study of subjects recovered from hemiparetic stroke.
TLDR
Recovered finger-tapping by stroke subjects activated the same motor regions as controls but to a larger extent, particularly in the unaffected hemisphere, which indicates increased reliance on these motor areas may represent an important component of motor recovery. Expand
BDNF val66met polymorphism is associated with modified experience-dependent plasticity in human motor cortex
TLDR
Using transcranial magnetic stimulation, it is shown that training-dependent increases in the amplitude of motor-evoked potentials and motor map reorganization are reduced in healthy subjects with a val66met polymorphism in the brain-derived neurotrophic factor gene (BDNF), as compared to subjects without the polymorphism. Expand
Robot-based hand motor therapy after stroke.
TLDR
A robot-based therapy showed improvements in hand motor function after chronic stroke, and reorganization of motor maps during the current therapy was task-specific, a finding useful when considering generalization of rehabilitation therapy. Expand
BDNF val66met polymorphism influences motor system function in the human brain.
TLDR
The presence of this BDNF polymorphism is associated with differences in brain motor system function, altered short-term plasticity, and greater error in short- term motor learning. Expand
Harnessing neuroplasticity for clinical applications
TLDR
Integration of information across disciplines should enhance opportunities for the translation of neuroplasticity and circuit retraining research into effective clinical therapies. Expand
Activation of distinct motor cortex regions during ipsilateral and contralateral finger movements.
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to study precentral gyrus activation in six control and three stroke patients during right index finger tapping, and the most significantly activated site was identified during ipsilateral and during contralateral finger tapping. Expand
Brain Activation during Face Perception: Evidence of a Developmental Change
TLDR
The current results provide biological insight into changes in visual processing of faces that occur with normal development and regions believed to be involved in processing basic facial features were activated in both younger and older children. Expand
Instructional treatment associated with changes in brain activation in children with dyslexia
TLDR
Results suggest that behavioral gains from comprehensive reading instruction are associated with changes in brain function during performance of language tasks, which are specific to different language processes and closely resemble patterns of neural processing characteristic of normal readers.
