Motor training can induce profound physiological plasticity within primary motor cortex, including changes in corticospinal output and motor map topography. Using transcranial magnetic stimulation, we show that training-dependent increases in the amplitude of motor-evoked potentials and motor map reorganization are reduced in healthy subjects with a(More)
Speckle noise and artifacts in echocardiogram may cause edges to manifest themselves in different manners. As a result, edges in echocardiogram are identified with ambiguous definitions and they pose challenges for conventional gradient approximations that typically characterize an edge as an abrupt change in gray-level. Therefore, an approach using fuzzy(More)
BACKGROUND Statin administration early in ischemic stroke may influence outcomes. Our aim was to determine the clinical impact of increasing statin administration early in ischemic stroke hospitalization. METHODS AND RESULTS This is a retrospective analysis of a multicenter electronic medical record (EMR) intervention to increase early statin(More)
BACKGROUND Patients admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU) with a primary neurologic disorder often receive multiple radiation-based diagnostic studies of the head and neck. Although radiation exposure puts them at risk of intracranial and neck tumors, the amount of radiation received is largely unknown. METHODS We sought to accurately collect(More)
