BACKGROUND While Walkbot-assisted locomotor training (WLT) provided ample evidence on balance and gait improvements, the therapeutic effects on cardiopulmonary and psychological elements as well as fall confidence are unknown in stroke survivors. OBJECTIVE The present study aimed to compare the effects of Walkbot locomotor training (WLT) with conventional locomotor training (CLT) on balance and gait, cardiopulmonary and psychological functions and fall confidence in acute hemiparetic stroke. MET...

Background. In children with unilateral cerebral palsy (UCP), the fibers of the corticospinal tract (CST) emerging from the lesioned hemisphere are damaged following the initial brain injury. The e...
Background. Variability in hand function among children with unilateral cerebral palsy (UCP) might reflect the type of brain injury and resulting anatomical sequelae. Objective. We used atlas-based...

Children with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy (USCP) have shown impaired bimanual coordination. The corpus callosum (CC) connects the two hemispheres and is critical for tasks that require inter-hemisphere communication. The relationship between the functional bimanual coordination impairments and structural integrity of the CC is unclear. We hypothesized that better integrity of the CC would relate to better bimanual coordination performance during a kinematic bimanual drawer-opening task. Th...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety of combining salivary gland onabotulinumtoxinA (BTX-A) injections for sialorrhea with intramuscular BTX-A injections for spasticity in the same procedure. DESIGN: A retrospective cohort study in a tertiary hospital center. Patients selected were younger than 20 years, diagnosed with cerebral palsy, and received their first salivary gland BTX-A injection between March 2011 and July 2015. Chart review and telephone interviews were performed. The primary outcome me...

AIMS: The corpus callosum (CC) regulates signalling between the two hemispheres and plays an important role in upper limb functions. There is limited evidence on the relationships between the integrity of the CC and upper limb functions in children with USCP. Furthermore, the extent of how much the CC can be used as a biomarker to predict hand functions following intensive interventions remains unknown. We examined 1) the relationship between hand function and tractography of the CC, and 2) the ...

The recent enhanced sophistication of non-invasive mapping of human motor cortex using MRI-guided Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) techniques, has not been matched by refinement of methods for generating maps from motor evoked potential (MEP) data, or in quantifying map features. This is despite continued interest in understanding cortical reorganization for natural adaptive processes such as skill learning, or in the case of motor recovery, such as after lesion affecting the corticospina...
