OBJECTIVE We describe here a patient with intracerebral haemorrhage who showed recovery of an injured medial lemniscus and its related thalamocortical pathway on follow- up diffusion tensor tractography. CASE REPORT A 48-year-old man presented with right hemiplegia following a spontaneous intracerebral haemorrhage in the left corona radiata and basal ganglia. He underwent conservative management for intracerebral haemorrhage and comprehensive rehabilitative therapy. RESULTS The kinesthetic… Expand
Recovery of an injured medial lemniscus with concurrent recovery of pusher syndrome in a stroke patient: a case report
TLDR
Recovery of a severely injured medial lemniscus with concurrent recovery of impaired proprioception and pusher syndrome is observed with a 67-year-old, right-handed male patient who underwent hematoma removal related to an intracerebral hemorrhage. Expand
Thalamic Reorganization in Chronic Patients With Intracerebral Hemorrhage
TLDR
It appears that patients who showed shifting of the thalamic synaptic area of the STT might have recovered by the process ofThalamic reorganization following thalamus injury, which appears to be related to poorer somatosensory outcome. Expand
Traumatic axonal injury of the medial lemniscus pathway in a patient with traumatic brain injury: validation by diffusion tensor tractography
TLDR
A 24-year-old man who was injured in a traffic accident and underwent conservative treatment for contusional hemorrhage in both frontal lobes at the Department of Neurosurgery in Yeungnam University Hospital, Republic of Korea is reported on, reports a patient with injury of the medial lemniscus pathway (ML) following TBI using DTT.

Significance of rehabilitative management during the critical period for motor recovery in intracerebral hemorrhage: a case report.
TLDR
A case of a patient with intracerebral haemorrhage who showed changes in the affected motor function and in the damaged corticospinal tract at the primary motor cortex (M1) during rehabilitative management, indicating the importance of active and comprehensive rehabilitation management during the critical period for motor recovery in stroke patients.

TLDR
The activation of only the contra-lesional somatosensory cortex during passive hand movements in these patients suggests the involvement of this area in somatoensory processing for passive movements after stroke. Expand
Cortical reorganization in patients with subcortical hemiparesis: neural mechanisms of functional recovery and prognostic implication.
TLDR
Effective functional organization of the ipsilateral pathway, as identified by linked activation of the iipsilateral primary sensorimotor cortex and contralateral anterior lobe of the cerebellum, is correlated with a good prognostic outcome for patients in the slow recovery group. Expand
Identification of the medial lemniscus in the human brain: Combined study of functional MRI and diffusion tensor tractography
TLDR
The medial lemniscus pathway in the human brain was identified using the combined fMRI/DTT method and the fractional anisotropy (FA) value of the ML was similar to that of the CST. Expand

PURPOSE To prospectively evaluate the course of sensory fibers through the supratentorial brain with diffusion-tensor-based tractography. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by theExpand
Somatosensory Gating and Recovery From Stroke Involving the Thalamus
TLDR
Insight is provided into potential mechanisms that contribute to sensory gating and the ability to control sensory input through effective gating mechanisms, in addition to primary somatosensory representation, may be important for poststroke sensory recovery. Expand
Functional Neuroimaging Studies of Motor Recovery After Stroke in Adults: A Review
TLDR
Both cross-sectional and longitudinal studies have demonstrated that the damaged adult brain is able to reorganize to compensate for motor deficits, and the main mechanism underlying recovery of motor abilities involves enhanced activity in preexisting networks. Expand
Modified activation of somatosensory cortical network in patients with right-hemisphere stroke.
TLDR
The results suggest that the human SI and SII cortices may be sequentially activated within one hemisphere, whereas SII ipsilateral to the stimulation may receive direct input from the periphery, at least when normal input from SI is interrupted. Expand
On the reorganization of sensory hand areas after mono-hemispheric lesion: a functional (MEG)/anatomical (MRI) integrative study
TLDR
The topography of primary sensory cortical hand area following a monohemispheric lesion was investigated in relationship with clinical recovery of sensorimotor deficits and significant interhemispherical asymmetries due to neuronal reorganization in the AH were associated with worse clinical outcomes compared to patients without asymmetry. Expand
Functional Neuroimaging Studies of Motor Recovery After Stroke in Adults
TLDR
Both cross-sectional and longitudinal studies have demonstrated that the damaged adult brain is able to reorganize to compensate for motor deficits, suggesting that the main mechanism underlying recovery of motor deficit after stroke is a complete substitution of function. Expand
