An investigation of cortical neuroplasticity following stroke in adults: is there evidence for a critical window for rehabilitation
Scritto da BMC Neurology   
NeurologiaBackground:Evidence in animal stroke models suggests that neuroplasticity takes place maximally in a specific time window after an ischaemic lesion, which may coincide with the optimal time to intervene with rehabilitation. The aim of this study is ... ...
