Neural connectivity as a marker of post-stroke function

The human brain is capable of undergoing reorganisations throughout life. This ability is the basis for modification in human performance and behaviour. Recovery from brain injuries such as stroke relies heavily upon this ability of the brain to reorganise, allowing stroke survivors to regain function and improve performance.

However, some patients show greater capacity to compensate and recover following a stroke. Variable patterns of recovery may be related to individual differences in brain networks. Understanding the significance of brain networks may allow greater understanding of treatment approaches to improve stroke recovery.

This experiment will involve a series of measures to investigate brain networks, arm function, and responses to different brain stimulation techniques.
