OF INSC THERAPY ON MOTOR FUNCTION RECOVERY by TRINH UYEN NGUYEN (Under the Direction of Franklin D. West) ABSTRACT Most stroke survivors suffer from severe motor disabilities, including impaired manual dexterity and gait in the paretic limb. A novel stem cell therapy, induced pluripotent stem cellderived neural stem cells (iNSCs), has been shown to differentiate into neural cells and integrate into the stroked brain to reduce infarct size and improve motor recovery in rodents. However, there is…

Gait Impairment in a Rat Model of Focal Cerebral Ischemia
The translational applicability of CatWalk XT in evaluating motor impairment and treatment efficacy remains to be limited at least in rats with severe corticostriatal infarct and loss of body weight.

The gait-lab at Klinik Berlin developed and evaluated novel physical and pharmacological strategies promoting the repetitive practise of hemiparetic gait in line with the slogan: who wants to relearn
Human neural stem cells improve sensorimotor deficits in the adult rat brain with experimental focal ischemia
Brain Activity Changes Associated With Treadmill Training After Stroke
Although the dorsal premotor cortex appears to play an important role in recovery of hand movements, evidence for the involvement of this region in lower extremity recovery was not found and rehabilitation-associated walking improvements are associated with cortical activation changes.
Motor Recovery and Cortical Reorganization after Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy in Stroke Patients: A Preliminary Study
FMRI data provide preliminary evidence that gains in motor function produced by CIMT in chronic stroke patients may be associated with a shift in laterality of motor cortical activation toward the undamaged hemisphere.
Efficacy of Rehabilitative Experience Declines with Time after Focal Ischemic Brain Injury
The data suggest that the poststroke brain displays heightened sensitivity to rehabilitative experience early after the stroke but declines with time, which has important implications for rehabilitation of stroke patients, many of whom experience considerable delays before therapy is initiated.
Long-term behavioral assessment of function in an experimental model for ischemic stroke
CatWalk-assisted gait analysis in the assessment of spinal cord injury.
This review focuses on the newly developed CatWalk system for gait analysis and the history and meaning of powerful measures of coordination included in the analysis options provided by CatWalk.
