Abstract

A case of partial recovery after stroke and its associated brain reorganization in a chronic patient after combined brain computer interface (BCI) training and physiotherapy is presented. A multimodal neuroimaging approach based on fMRI and diffusion tensor imaging was used to investigate plasticity of the brain motor system in parallel with longitudinal clinical assessments. A convergent association between functional and structural data in the ipsilesional premotor areas was observed. As a proof of concept investigation, these results encourage further research on a specific role of BCI on brain plasticity and recovery after stroke.
