    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...
