Clinical Trials for Hand Weakness

In a collaborative study, we have developed a hand-motor therapy rooted in the basic motor physiology of the mirror system for the recovery of hand motor skills after stroke. This work not only assesses the efficacy of the therapy in terms of motor skills, but also uses a directed covariance analysis to assess functional networks implicated in recovery.

This work in collaboration with Dr SL Small (Neurology, UCI), Drs G Buccino (Catanzaro) and G Rizzolatti (Parma) in Italy and F Binkofski (Luebeck, Germany) is supported by an RO1 grant from the NIH (NINDS).

Individuals who are interested in participating or hearing more about this therapy are encouraged to contact us.
