This is the first fMRI study in the literature that provides evidence for neuroplasticity after VR therapy in a child with hemiparetic CP and it was associated with enhanced functional motor skills including reaching, self‐feeding, and dressing.
Virtual Reality–Induced Cortical Reorganization and Associated Locomotor Recovery in Chronic Stroke: An Experimenter-Blind Randomized Study
This is the first fMRI study in the literature that provides evidence for neuroplasticity and associated locomotor recovery after VR and suggests that VR could induce cortical reorganization from aberrant ipsilateral to contralateral SMC activation.

It seems that cortical reorganization was induced by the TT program in chronic hemiparetic stroke patients, which resulted in a decrease in the unaffected and an increase in the affected primary sensorimotor cortex activities.
Different cortical activation patterns during voluntary eccentric and concentric muscle contractions: an fMRI study.
It is demonstrated that eccentric and concentric muscle contractions induced quite different patterns of cortical activity respectively, which might be attributed to different strategy of neuro-motor processing and a higher level of cognitive demand for the performance of motor task with a higher degree of difficulty such as that required during eccentric contractions in comparison of concentric contractions.
Response Inhibition Induced in the Stop-signal Task by Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation of the Pre-supplementary Motor Area and Primary Sensoriomotor Cortex
The results suggest that when concurrently applied with the SST, tDCS might be a useful adjuvant therapeutic modality for modulation of the response inhibition and its related dynamic behavioral changes between motor execution and suppression.

This study raises the potential that the contralesional SM1 is involved in cortical reorganization associated lower extremity motor recovery in stroke, and is the first neuroimaging evidence that the combined fMRI and DTI fiber tracing can significantly expand the explanatory power of probing cortex reorganization underlying motor recovery mechanism in stroke.
