Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

In this study, fMRI was evaluated as a predictor of individual response to a rehabilitation program. Initial functional connectivity (FC) and acute change in FC after the first therapy session were associated with change in upper-extremity motor function from baseline to one-month follow-up after six-weeks of therapy. This result encourages a large study to examine if fMRI FC is predictive of patients’ responsiveness to an intervention, thus promoting individualized treatment.
