Clinical Trial

Bilateral Priming Plus Task Specific Training for Severe Upper Limb Hemiparesis

IRB Protocol Number STU00205857

Contact

Dr. Mary Ellen Stoykov mstoykov@sralab.org

Objective

To test the hypothesis that bilateral symmetrical movements prime cortical regions of the brain and enhance the effects of training and neural plasticity

Who Can Participate

Participants must meet the following criteria:

  • 18 years or older
  • Single stroke at least 6 months ago
  • Impairment in your arm and hand
  • No Botox® injection in your arm within the past 6 months
  • No history of epilepsy or seizure disorder
  • No previous head injury

A 16-week study testing a new rehabilitation approach that combines bilateral priming with high-repetition, task-specific training.  Training will focus on the hand and arm.  Training consists of 3 visits per week for 5 weeks. Evaluation sessions (including transcranial magnetic stimulation - TMS) will occur throughout the study.

Compensation

Participants will receive $25 per session.
