Neurophysiological Correlates of Lower Extremity Motor Asymmetries Post-stroke
The purpose of this research study is to identify factors that predict walking recovery following stroke. The study will investigate patterns of motor function both in people who have had a stroke and healthy people of similar age. The researchers hope to learn about how brain changes following stroke relate to the capacity for recovery of muscle strength and walking in rehabilitation. Study activities involve: 1) Clinical Assessments, 2) Motion analysis of walking, 3) TMS (non-invasive transcranial magnetic stimulation) to understand brain activity related to walking.
