Motor rehabilitation therapy is commonly employed after strokes, but outcomes are variable and there is little specific information about the changes in brain activity that are associated with improved function. We performed serial functional MRI (fMRI) on a group of seven patients receiving a form of rehabilitation therapy after stroke in order to characterize functional changes in the brain that correlate with behavioural improvements. Patients were scanned while performing a hand flexion… CONTINUE READING
