Previously, we showed that the ventral premotor cortex (PMv) underwent neurophysiological remodeling after injury to the primary motor cortex (M1). In the present study, we examined cortical connections of PMv after such lesions. The neuroanatomical tract tracer biotinylated dextran amine was injected into the PMv hand area at least 5 months after ischemic injury to the M1 hand area. Comparison of labeling patterns between experimental and control animals demonstrated extensive proliferation of… Expand

Lesion Area in the Cerebral Cortex Determines the Patterns of Axon Rewiring of Motor and Sensory Corticospinal Tracts After Stroke
The corticospinal tract (CST) is an essential neural pathway for reorganization that recovers motor functions after brain injuries such as stroke. CST comprises multiple pathways derived fromExpand
Anatomical Plasticity of the Distal Forelimb Projection of the Ventral Premotor Cortex Four weeks After Primary Motor Cortex Injury
TLDR
This present study is the first use rigorous stereological quantification to show that significant neuroplastic changes in the form of changes to neuroanatomical connections between distant cortical area occurs at a very early time point of 4 weeks post injury. Expand
Rewiring the Brain
TLDR
2 distinct patterns of reorganization are proposed that differentially engage ipsilesional and contralesional PMC: dorsal (PMd) and ventral (PMv) premotor cortices as critical anatomical and physiological nodes within the neural networks for the control and learning of goal-oriented reach and grasp actions in healthy individuals and individuals with stroke.

Task Related Neural Activity Following Primary Motor Cortical Ischemic Injury in Rats
TLDR
The data suggest contralateral pre-motor and ipsilateral M1 alter their neural response profiles with respect to the timing of a motor task during recovery, the first demonstration of a compensatory single-spike neurophysiological mechanism that may explain how remote, spared cortical areas contribute to functional recovery after M1 injury.

Vicarious Function of Remote Cortex following Stroke: Recent Evidence from Human and Animal Studies
  • N. Dancause
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • The Neuroscientist : a review journal bringing neurobiology, neurology and psychiatry
  • 2006
TLDR
The author reviews human and animal studies that show the plastic potential of the adult CNS after stroke, highlighting the vicarious role of the premotor cortex in the recovery of motor control. Expand
Remodeling of the Axon Initial Segment After Focal Cortical and White Matter Stroke
TLDR
Stroke alters the compartmental morphology of surviving adjacent neurons in peri-infarct cortex and in neurons whose distal axons are injured by white matter stroke, contributing to altered neuronal excitability after injury. Expand
Acute Cortical Transhemispheric Diaschisis after Unilateral Traumatic Brain Injury.
TLDR
The hypothesis that the undamaged hemisphere could play a significant role in early functional reorganization processes after a TBI is supported, which may compensate and stabilize the disrupted brain functions. Expand
Multimodal Examination of Structural and Functional Remapping in the Mouse Photothrombotic Stroke Model
TLDR
Findings show that the sensorimotor cortex undergoes remapping of cortical functions and axonal sprouting within the same regions during recovery after stroke, which suggests a linked structural and physiologic plasticity underlying recovery. Expand
Role of the Contra-lesional Cortex in Recovery of Function After Traumatic Brain Injury
After a lateralized traumatic brain injury (TBI), neural repair and regeneration in the area proximal to the injured region is known to be associated with recovery of some of the function lost toExpand
Long-term gliosis and molecular changes in the cervical spinal cord of the rhesus monkey after traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
Changes in the non-human primate spinal cord support a long-term trophic/tropic role for reactive microglia, in particular, during functional and structural recovery after TBI. Expand

Reorganization of remote cortical regions after ischemic brain injury: a potential substrate for stroke recovery.
TLDR
It is suggested that neurophysiologic reorganization of remote cortical areas occurs in response to cortical injury and that the greater the damage to reciprocal intracortical pathways, the great the plasticity in intact areas. Expand
New Patterns of Intracortical Projections after Focal Cortical Stroke
TLDR
The peri-infarct cortex is structurally abnormal, loses thalamic connections, and develops new horizontal cortical connections by axonal sprouting after focal strokes in rat whisker barrel cortex. Expand
Axonal sprouting accompanies functional reorganization in adult cat striate cortex
TLDR
It is reported here that structural changes in the form of axonal sprouting of long-range laterally projecting neurons accompany topographic remodelling of the visual cortex. Expand
Anatomical and functional evidence for lesion‐specific sprouting of corticostriatal input in the adult rat
TLDR
Striatal enkephalin mRNA levels were increased after a unilateral thermocoagulatory lesion, however, they were unchanged after aspiration or bilateral thermocogulatory lesions, suggesting that sprouting or overactivity of contralateral corticostriatal input contributes to the increase seen after unilateral therm Cocoagulatory lesions.

TLDR
The studies of cortical reorganization following neonatal sciatic nerve injury underscore the importance of developmental age at time of injury and how developmental stage influences plastic responses to peripheral injury in the somatosensory system. Expand

Neural Substrates for the Effects of Rehabilitative Training on Motor Recovery After Ischemic Infarct
TLDR
The results suggest that, after local damage to the motor cortex, rehabilitative training can shape subsequent reorganization in the adjacent intact cortex, and that the undamaged motor cortex may play an important role in motor recovery. Expand
Neocortical neural sprouting, synaptogenesis, and behavioral recovery after neocortical infarction in rats.
TLDR
Data support the occurrence of neurite growth followed by synaptogenesis in the neocortex, ipsilateral and contralateral to neocortical ischemia, in a pattern that corresponds both spatially and temporally with behavioral recovery. Expand
Large-scale cortical reorganization following forelimb deafferentation in rat does not involve plasticity of intracortical connections
TLDR
It is suggested that subcortical sites may play a major role in large-scale cortical reorganization in adult rats following forelimb removal and postulated that the "new" shoulder representations in the FBS were relayed from the " original" shoulder representation. Expand
Architectionis, somatotopic organization, and ipsilateral cortical connections of the primary motor area (M1) of owl monkeys
TLDR
The results indicate that M1 interacts directly with at least three non‐primary motor areas and at least six somatosensory areas, and the extent and somatotopic organization of M1 was determined by making detailed microstimulation movement maps and relating the results to cortical architectonics.
