Functional brain imaging studies have provided insights into the processes related to motor recovery after stroke. The comparative value of different motor activation tasks for probing these processes has received limited study. We hypothesized that different hand motor tasks would activate the brain differently in controls, and that this would affect control-patient comparisons. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to evaluate nine control subjects and seven patients with good… CONTINUE READING
