Plasticity of the Primary Motor Cortex in Patients with Primary Brain Tumors
Correlation plots of ipsilesional and contralesional plasticity against patient-level factors. Ipsilesional recruitment was measured via percent recruitment (blue circles) and contralesional recruitment was measured via change in laterality (orange triangles) as computed from serial fMRI scans. Ipsilesional and contralesional graphs were placed on the same -axis for efficiency. Mode of recruitment is plotted versus (a) age (years), (b) time between scans (months), (c) growth velocity (cm3/mo), (d) tumor volume (cm3), (e) distance from motor cortex (cm), and (f) degree of SMA recruitment (% change) from the first scan to the second scan. values for each correlation are listed in each plot, with significant correlations () in bold.
