Special Issue "Functional Recovery after Stroke"
A special issue of Brain Sciences (ISSN 2076-3425).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2016).
I would like to invite you to contribute an article to a Special Issue of Brain Sciences that is dedicated to functional recovery after stroke.
This Special Issue will feature research articles that advance our understanding of neural, muscular, biomechanical, and behavioral factors that influence functional recovery of movement after stroke. I welcome basic, applied, and clinical research articles that utilize contemporary approaches to test novel hypotheses. Additionally of interest is translational work that seeks to bridge gaps among theory, laboratory observations, and clinical practice with the goal of enhancing functional recovery from stroke. In light of the heterogeneous nature of stroke and variations in recovery of movement after stroke, I am particularly interested in including articles that explore inter-individual differences and mechanistic explanations for these differences.
After compiling these articles into a Special Issue, it is my hope that we will be one step closer to understanding the mechanisms of functional recovery from stroke and to using this knowledge to enhance clinical care and quality of life for people with stroke. For these reasons, I welcome your expert contribution to this Special Issue.
