fMRI stroke cerebral reorganization stage working memory aphasia lesion recovery syntax
Project description

The cerebral (re)organisation of syntax and working memory will be followed for 12 months (post-stroke) by repeated fMRI assessment. The localisation and extend of the lesion will be examined as well. To visualize the functional recovery and the correlation between the different factors, the fMRI assessment will be associated with the performance on language and working memory tasks.
