Abstract:Implanted cortical stimulation is foreseen to facilitate functional poststroke recovery. Until now, no study has concluded on its pathophysiological mechanism. We report a case of a 58-year-old patient for whom cortical stimulation triggered a drastic enhancement of speech performances. The effects remain reversible after 6 years of stimulation, reflecting intra/inter-hemispheric modulation.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
