This Special Issue will focus on findings related to recovery of function following stroke.
The aims are:
- to highlight findings that use clinical data to extend our current theoretical understanding of recovery and rehabilitation and
- to provide an understanding of prognosis related to various specific functions or sequelae (e.g., depression) and of the factors that affect recovery and rehabilitation following stroke.
The focus can be pediatric or adult; empirical research or review papers are acceptable.
Authors interested in submitting review articles should first contact the Special Issue Guest Editor to ensure their topic does not overlap with review articles that have already been solicited for this Special Issue.
