Stroke: Neuro-rehabilitation helps patients cope with loss of motor function

A new study reveals an improvement in the efficiency of the brain activity when patients receive a treatment combining motor revalidation with non-invasive brain stimulation. These results were demonstrated via the technique of functional MRI.
