    Animal experiments have indicated that noradrenergic agents can improve the recovery from stroke. In this double-blind placebo-controlled crossover study, hemiparetic chronic stroke patients (n = 10) received a single dose of the noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor reboxetine or placebo. Then the...

    Motor training with the upper limb affected by stroke partially reverses the loss of cortical representation after lesion and has been proposed to increase spontaneous arm use. Moreover, repeated attempts to use the affected hand in daily activities create a form of practice that can potentially...

    Background and Purpose. It is largely unknown how adaptive motor control of the paretic upper limb contributes to functional recovery after stroke. This paucity of knowledge emphasizes the need for longitudinal 3-dimensional (3D) kinematic studies with frequent measurements to establish changes...
