Background Persistent sensorimotor impairments after stroke can negatively impact quality of life. The hippocampus is vulnerable to poststroke secondary degeneration and is involved in sensorimotor behavior but has not been widely studied within the context of poststroke upper‐limb sensorimotor impairment. We investigated associations between non‐l...

Sensorimotor performance after stroke is strongly related to focal injury measures such as corticospinal tract lesion load. However, the role of global brain health is less clear. Here, we examined the impact of brain age, a measure of neurobiological aging derived from whole brain structural neuroimaging, on sensorimotor outcomes. We hypothesized...
Article
Background Precise measurement of outcomes is essential for stroke trials and clinical care. Prior research has highlighted conceptual differences between global outcome measures such as the Modified Rankin Scale (mRS) and domain-specific measures (e.g. motor, sensory, language or cognitive function). This study related motor phenotypes to the mRS,...
Article
Research Objectives To assess the feasibility of collecting transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) measures at the bedside during acute stroke hospitalization and to associate TMS neurophysiology with upper extremity (UE) behavioral measures. Design The Stroke Motor reHabilitation and Recovery sTudy (SMaHRT; https://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/sho...
Article
Introduction: Robust outcome data collection is critical for stroke care and clinical trials. However, reaching patients after discharge from acute care is challenging. This study examined the feasibility, acceptability, and accuracy of collecting outcomes through a text message-based program after stroke. Methods: Patients discharged between June...
Article
Introduction: Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) provide valuable insights into health status and function, but their relationships with performance-based outcomes remain incompletely understood. Here we compared these two classes of measures using dimensionality-reduction techniques with longitudinal data and examined their relationships wi...

Persistent sensorimotor impairments after stroke can negatively impact quality of life. The hippocampus is involved in sensorimotor behavior but has not been widely studied within the context of post-stroke upper limb sensorimotor impairment. The hippocampus is vulnerable to secondary degeneration after stroke, and damage to this region could furth...
Article
Full-text available
Up to two-thirds of stroke survivors experience persistent sensorimotor impairments. Recovery relies on the integrity of spared brain areas to compensate for damaged tissue. Deep grey matter structures play a critical role in the control and regulation of sensorimotor circuits. The goal of this work is to identify associations between volumes of sp...
Article
Date Presented Accepted for AOTA INSPIRE 2021 but unable to be presented due to online event limitations. Upper extremity (UE) functional recovery after stroke requires the integration of motor and sensory systems. We describe the relationship among recovery of somatosensation, motor impairment, and manual dexterity from acute to 3 months poststrok...
Article
Objective To test the hypothesis that cognitive demands influence motor performance during recovery from acute stroke, we tested acute stroke patients on two motor tasks with different cognitive demands and related task performance to cognitive impairment and neuroanatomic injury. Methods We assessed the contralesional and ipsilesional upper extre...
Article
Systems for stroke rehabilitation and recovery are variable and fragmented; stroke survivors often experience gaps in care with detrimental effects on their recovery. We designed and hosted a multidisciplinary and interactive workshop to discuss challenges facing patients recovering from stroke and brainstorm solutions. Forty one participants inclu...
Article
Background: Studies of movement of the upper extremity for stroke patients currently require assessments with special equipment and trained assessors, limiting the accessibility. Hevelius is an experimental online platform designed to study human interaction with technology at a large scale. Our aim was to demonstrate the feasibility of using Hevel...
Article
Background: Return to driving and employment are goals for many stroke survivors. There are few reports of patient centered outcomes including return to employment, driving, self-efficacy, functional outcomes, stroke knowledge or characteristics of survivors who achieve these goals. Methods: Prospective observational study of stroke patients treate...
