Résumé
Stroke is a major cause of disability in all age groups. Although the value of specific rehabilitative therapies is now acknowledged, the mechanisms of impairment and recovery are not well understood. There is growing interest in the role that central nervous system reorganisation might play in the recovery process, and in particular whether this reorganisation can be manipulated to provide clinical benefits for patients. The careful use of non-invasive techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging and transcranial magnetic stimulation allows the study of the working human brain, and studies in humans suggest that functionally relevant adaptive changes occur in cerebral networks following stroke. An understanding of how these changes influence the recovery process will facilitate the development of novel therapeutic techniques that are based on neurobiological principles and will allow the delivery of specific therapies to appropriately targeted patients suffering from stroke.
