Longitudinal study on modulated corticospinal excitability throughout recovery in supratentorial stroke, Neuroscience Letters http://dx.Highlights  Corticospinal excitability is modulated over 6 months recovery in stroke  Asymmetry in CSE reaches normal levels after ~1 month after stroke onset  Lesion size and severity correlate positively with reduced CSE rMT: Resting motor threshold SSS: Scandinavian stroke scale TA: Tibialis anterior TMS: Transcranial magnetic stimulation UH: Unaffected hemisphere
