Konczak and colleagues publish study in journal Stroke
In collaboration with German colleagues from the University Medical Center in Essen, Prof. Juergen Konczak and researchers from the Human Sensorimotor Control Laboratory analyzed the motor performance of patients within days after a cerebellar stroke and then measured their rate of recovery over the next three months. The study revealed that the prognosis for recovery was clearly better when the deeper structures of the cerebellum were spared from stroke - a finding that has important implications for post-stroke treatment.
The results are published in the journal Stroke, which is considered the world's No.1 clinical journal related to stroke research (impact factor 7.04). To freely access the paper visit: http://stroke.ahajournals.org/cgi/reprint/STROKEAHA.110.583641?ijkey=PlrxCexYhfpUbxh&keytype=ref
