Clinical Study

Brain Activation in Primary Motor and Somatosensory Cortices during Motor Imagery Correlates with Motor Imagery Ability in Stroke Patients

Table 5

Significant clusters of activation for the comparison between “Pinching with affected hand” (PA) and “Imagery of the affected hand”. For the comparison PA > IA, a single-voxel uncorrected threshold and cluster size was chosen. BA: Brodmann area at given coordinates.

#Voxels: number of voxels in cluster. MNI: coordinates in the Montreal Neurological Institute standard brain space. : maximum score in cluster. The percentage of voxels from the cluster falling within the named region is indicated by the superscripted values (obtained by the SPM Anatomy Toolbox).
