OBJECTIVE For most patients, resolution of upper limb impairment during the first 6 months poststroke is 70% of the maximum possible. We sought to identify candidate mechanisms of this proportional recovery. We hypothesized that proportional resolution of upper limb impairment depends on ipsilesional corticomotor pathway function, is mirrored by proportional recovery of excitability in this pathway, and is unaffected by upper limb therapy dose. METHODS Upper limb impairment was measured in 93… CONTINUE READING
