Motor Rehabilitation after Stroke

Description

Stroke is among the most common causes of adult-onset impairment and disability. Motor impairment affects most stroke survivors with persisting functional problems. Recent motor therapeutic approaches have been developed along with the growth of neuroscientific and neurobehavioral knowledge about basic mechanisms for motor capacity, motor control, and motor relearning. These theory-driven approaches attempt to translate basic sciences into novel clinical practice and build on methods to manipulate the remarkable plasticity of the brain in response to task-related practice, drug, robotic trainers, electrical stimulation, and other interventions to augment motor recovery. However, the complexity of motor rehabilitation after stroke requires focused research to shed light on what emerging therapies work best for which patients at different recovery stages.

We invite authors to submit papers on the topic of motor rehabilitation after stroke. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The efficacy/effectiveness of motor rehabilitation therapies
  • Possible mechanisms underlying motor recovery or effective rehabilitation
  • Possible effects of treatment intensity on motor recovery after stroke
  • The relevance and application of technologies and treatments for poststroke motor rehabilitation in the home environment
  • Study of therapeutic elements that may contribute to refined treatment protocols
  • Possible adverse effects of intense rehabilitation
  • Study of physiological or behavioral markers relevant to stroke motor rehabilitation
  • Proof-of-concept study of innovative techniques for motor rehabilitation
  • Psychometric or clinimetric study of outcome measures often used in stroke rehabilitation trials
