Background and Purpose— The corticoreticular pathway (CRP) is known to be an important extrapyramidal tract for walking ability. However, little is known about the functional role of the CRP in recovery of walking ability. We investigated relation between the CRP and walking ability in chronic hemiparetic stroke patients. Methods— Among 209 consecutive patients, 54 patients, who showed complete injury of the corticospinal tract (CST) in the affected hemisphere on diffusion tensor tractography… Expand
Characteristics of injury of the corticospinal tract and corticoreticular pathway in hemiparetic patients with putaminal hemorrhage
TLDR
The results indicate that the putaminal hemorrhage frequently accompanies injury of both the CST and CRP, and the CRP appears to be more vulnerable to putaminals hemorrhage than the CST. Expand

TLDR
The present study showed that CST integrity (at 6 months after onset) in patients with chronic stroke was related to functional hand status, and the mid-pons FA value was more predictive of functional restoration of the hand than the FN or FA value at the pontomedullary junction. Expand
Injury of the corticoreticular pathway in patients with mild traumatic brain injury: A diffusion tensor tractography study
TLDR
Injury of the CRP is demonstrated in patients who showed proximal weakness following mild TBI, using diffusion tensor tractography (DTT). Expand
The different maturation of the corticospinal tract and corticoreticular pathway in normal brain development: diffusion tensor imaging study
TLDR
The difference in maturation process between CST and CRP appears to be related to different periods of fine and gross motor development, which can provide a scientific basis for understanding development in motor function. Expand
The Relation Between Injury of the Spinothalamocortical Tract and Central Pain in Chronic Patients With Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
It is found that injury of the STT is related to the occurrence of central pain in patients with mild TBI. Expand
Gait Characteristic in a Stroke Patient with an Intact Corticospinal Tract and Corticoreticular Pathway: A Case Study
TLDR
The results of diffusion tensor imaging showed that although the patient was evaluated to be capable of an independent gait, the quality and quantity of gait might be reduced. Expand
Corticoreticular tract lesion in children with developmental delay presenting with gait dysfunction and trunk instability
TLDR
Functional evaluation data and clinical manifestations were found to show strong correlations with CRT status, rather than with corticospinal tract status, and these findings suggest that CRTstatus appears to be clinically important for gait function and trunk stability in pediatric patients and DTT can help assessCRT status in pediatric Patients with gait dysfunction.

Injury of the corticobulbar tract in patients with dysarthria following cerebral infarct: diffusion tensor tractography study
TLDR
Injury of the CBT in patients with dysarthria following cerebral infarct in the corona radiata is demonstrated using diffusion tensor tractography (DTT), indicating the importance of CBT evaluation for Dysarthria in patients of stroke patients. Expand
Effects of injuries to descending motor pathways on restoration of gait in patients with pontine hemorrhage.
TLDR
The CST does not play an essential role in recovery of independent walking and vestibulospinal tracts may not crucially affect recovery ofindependent walking in patients with pontine hemorrhage. Expand
Postural Instability in Patients With Injury of Corticoreticular Pathway Following Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Significantly lower tract volume of the CRP was observed in the patient group than in the control group with no significant difference in fractional anisotropy and apparent diffusion coefficient values. Expand

Corticospinal Tract Change in the Unaffected Hemisphere at the Early Stage of Intracerebral Hemorrhage: A Diffusion Tensor Tractography Study
TLDR
Investigation of changes in the corticospinal tract in the unaffected hemisphere at the early stage in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage, using diffusion tensor tractography (DTT), demonstrated that the CST in the affected hemisphere was changed at the late stage. Expand
The clinical characteristics of motor function in chronic hemiparetic stroke patients with complete corticospinal tract injury.
TLDR
Investigation of the clinical characteristics of motor function in chronic hemiparetic stroke patients with complete CST injury found that motor weaknesses of distal joint musculature and upper extremities were more severe than those of proximal joint musculation and lower extremities following complete injury of the CST in stroke. Expand
Corticoreticular pathway in the human brain: Diffusion tensor tractography study
TLDR
The corticoreticular pathway, which originated from the premotor cortex, descended through the corona radiata and the posterior limb of the internal capsule anterior to the corticospinal tract, and terminated at the pontomedullary reticular formation. Expand
Can stroke patients walk after complete lateral corticospinal tract injury of the affected hemisphere?
TLDR
Some stroke patients can walk despite complete lateral corticospinal tract injury of the affected hemisphere, according to clinical course, brain magnetic resonance imaging, and diffusion tensor tractography. Expand
Microstructural status of ipsilesional and contralesional corticospinal tract correlates with motor skill in chronic stroke patients
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that the level of motor skill recovery achieved in patients with hemiparetic stroke relates to microstructural status of the CST in both the ipsilesional and contralesional hemispheres, which may reflect the net effect of degeneration and remodeling of bilateral CST. Expand
Diffusion tensor tractography can predict hemiparesis in infants with high risk factors
TLDR
In these two patients, DTT revealed abnormalities of the CST prior to the manifestation of hemiparesis, suggesting DTT would be a useful modality in detecting CST abnormalities in advance of clinical manifestation in infants with high risk factors. Expand
Recovery of an injured corticospinal tract and an injured corticoreticular pathway in a patient with intracerebral hemorrhage.
TLDR
Recovery of an injured CST and an injured CRP in a patient with an intracerebral hemorrhage is demonstrated by diffusion tensor tractography (DTT). Expand
Proximal weakness due to injury of the corticoreticular pathway in a patient with traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
The proximal weakness of the right shoulder and hip observed in this patient appeared to be attributed to injury of the left CRP. Expand

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The premotor cortex (PMC) (Brodmann 6) contributes uniquely to proximal upper and lower limb power and plays a role in the organization of motor behaviors. We assessed theExpand

TLDR
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.
