Abstract: Recovery and improvement of motor functions and abilities after stroke depend on the spontaneous recovery process but also on the reorganization of neural mechanisms. In animal studies, an Enriched Environment (EE) has proved to be an effective intervention for boosting brain plasticity and recovery after stroke. Until recently, an EE has been a laboratory phenomenon with few attempts of translation to the clinical setting. The overall aim of this thesis was to study whether enriched task-specif... more
