- Non-invasive mapping of corticofugal fibres from multiple motor areas--relevance to stroke recoveryJennifer M Newton
Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience, University College London London, UK
Brain 129:1844-58. 2006..These results confirm that selective disruption of motor corticofugal fibres influences functional reorganization and outcome in individual patients...
- Reliable assessment of lower limb motor representations with fMRI: use of a novel MR compatible device for real-time monitoring of ankle, knee and hip torquesJennifer M Newton
Department of Neurology, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095 1769, USA
Neuroimage 43:136-46. 2008..These findings support the use of this apparatus in serial studies of lower limb function...
- Motor system activation after subcortical stroke depends on corticospinal system integrityNick S Ward
Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience, Institute of Neurology, University College London, London, UK
Brain 129:809-19. 2006..Secondary motor regions are less efficient at generating motor output so this reorganization can only be considered partially successful in reducing motor impairment after stroke...
- The relationship between brain activity and peak grip force is modulated by corticospinal system integrity after subcortical strokeNick S Ward
Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience, and Department of Brain Repair and Rehabilitation, Institute of Neurology, University College London, London, UK
Eur J Neurosci 25:1865-73. 2007..These findings suggest that the premotor cortices might play a new and functionally relevant role in controlling force production in patients with more severe corticospinal system disruption...
- Age-dependent changes in the neural correlates of force modulation: an fMRI studyNick S Ward
Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience, Institute of Neurology, University College London, 12 Queen Square, London WC1N 3BG, UK
Neurobiol Aging 29:1434-46. 2008..These results indicate that a reduced ability to modulate activity in appropriate motor networks when required may contribute to age-related decline in motor performance...
- Compensatory cerebral adaptations before and evolving changes after surgical decompression in cervical spondylotic myelopathyYun Dong
Department of Neurology, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California at Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California 90095 1769, USA
J Neurosurg Spine 9:538-51. 2008..The goal of this study was to compare cortical sensorimotor adaptations associated with neurological deterioration and then recovery following surgical decompression for cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM)...
- Anatomy of stroke injury predicts gains from therapyJeff D Riley
University of California, Irvine Medical Center, Orange, CA 92868 4280, USA
Stroke 42:421-6. 2011..The current study addressed the hypothesis that behavioral gains from therapy targeting distal upper extremity are predicted by the structural integrity of key motor system white matter tracts...
- fMRI signal decreases in ipsilateral primary motor cortex during unilateral hand movements are related to duration and side of movementJennifer M Newton
Division of Stroke Medicine, University of Nottingham, Nottingham NG7 2RD, UK
Neuroimage 24:1080-7. 2005..These findings are discussed in the context of current understanding of the physiological origins of negative-to-baseline BOLD responses...
