Title:
Motor cortex plasticity in ischemic perinatal stroke: a transcranial magnetic stimulation and functional MRI study. 
Abstract:
To assess motor cortex plasticity after constraint-induced movement therapy in patients with ischemic perinatal stroke, functional MRI and transcranial magnetic stimulation were applied. Seven hemiparetic patients with ischemic perinatal stroke of the middle cerebral artery and preserved crossed corticospinal projections to the paretic hand were studied before and after 12 days of constraint-induced movement therapy. After therapy, all patients demonstrated improved manual motor function. Transc...    »
