Right brain structures may hold clue to language recovery after stroke

 

Scientists may be able to predict who is more likely to recover from language problems following a stroke by examining structures in the right hemisphere of the brain, according to research published in Neurology. If the left side of the brain is damaged by stroke, aphasia can result.

The study suggests that the right side of the brain reorganizes itself after a stroke to help language/speech-motor functions recover.

It is possible that those who made a better recovery had better structural integrity and more connectivity in those right hemisphere areas of the brain before their strokes.

Please visit www.secondstepinc.com to find out more about the results oriented, clinically proven Gait Harness System® (GHS) and NEW Gait Harness System® II (GHSII). Many severely injured individuals who are using the GHS, and who were unable to walk in the 5, 10 and 20 plus years post their injuries, are now beginning to stand and walk again for the first time. The GHS helps individuals regain healthy functioning after challenges due to spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke, cerebellar degeneration, orthopedic, neurological, lower extremity amputation, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and other ambulation, gait and balance rehabilitation issues. The GHS is used world-wide in a broad spectrum of out-patient, in-patient, and home enriched environments.
