Brain adaptation associated with spontaneous and training-induced recovery of touch sensation post-stroke, using serial fMRI.
Brain networks may reorganise to optimize stroke recovery. However, little is known about brain mechanisms underlying spontaneous and training-induced recovery post-stroke, particularly following loss of body sensations.Learn More
After stroke loss of body sensations is common, with negative impact on exploration of the immediate environment, hand function and return to daily activities. Yet, there are currently few approaches to sensory retraining described and limited controlled evidence of the effectiveness of these approaches.Learn More
Altered ability to grip and lift objects is a major problem following stroke. Lack of controlled evidence about the characteristics and underlying mechanisms limit effective management.Learn More
