BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The present study hypothesized that side of stroke and level of recovery influence motor system organization after stroke. METHODS Functional MRI was performed on 14 control subjects and 21 patients with chronic stroke during index finger tapping (control subjects, right; patients, recovered side). RESULTS On functional MRI, stroke patients with right arm involvement showed (1) significantly smaller activation in contralateral motor cortexes compared with control… CONTINUE READING
