Yukikazu Hidaka, Cheol E. Han, Steven L. Wolf, Carolee J. Winstein, Nicolas Schweighofer, Jörn Diedrichsen
2012 PLoS Computational Biology  
Use it and improve it, or lose it" is one of the axioms of motor therapy after stroke. There is, however, little understanding of the interactions between arm function and use in humans post-stroke.  ...  Using a Bayesian regression framework, we systematically compared this model with competitive models that included, or not, interactions between function and use.  ...  data retrieval and preparation.  ...
