OBJECTIVE The inhibitory role of neuronal networks in motor recovery after stroke remains to be elucidated. We examined the influence of transcallosal inhibition and short intracortical inhibition on motor recovery after stroke. We also investigated the correlation between transcallosal inhibition and mirror activity. DESIGN A cross-sectional study. SUBJECTS Thirty-eight chronic stroke patients. METHODS Transcallosal inhibition was evaluated using single transcranial magnetic stimulation… CONTINUE READING
