Functional MRI correlates of lower limb function in stroke victims with gait impairment.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Although knowledge concerning cortical reorganization related to upper limb function after ischemic stroke is growing, similar data for lower limb movements are limited. Previous studies with hand movement suggested increasing recruitment of motor areas in the unlesioned hemisphere with increasing disability. We used ankle movement as a lower limb analog to test for similarities and differences in recovery patterns. METHODS: Eighteen subjects were selected with chroni...
