  1. Combination Therapy for Chronic Stroke-Induced Impairment
    J Leigh Leasure; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..This application is relevant to public health because stroke survivors are prevalent among the elderly in our society. The proposed experiment will test a potential treatment for chronic stroke-related impairment in the aged brain. ..
