OBJECTIVE Motor imagery may activate the primary motor cortex (M1) and promote functional recovery following stroke. We investigated whether the hemisphere affected by stroke affects performance and M1 activity during motor imagery. METHODS Twelve stroke patients (6 left, 6 right hemisphere) and eight healthy age-matched adults participated. Experiment 1 assessed the speed and ease of actual and imagined motor performance. Experiment 2 measured corticomotor excitability during imagined… CONTINUE READING
