Abstract

Most individuals survive stroke and age with its consequences. Rehabilitation becomes the dominant medical need soon after onset, and coordinated rehabilitation services using evidence-based interventions determined by patient need are of primary importance in affecting outcome and quality of life. This discussion will focus on the natural history of recovery after stroke and the changes in brain organization that support behavioral improvement during recovery, then review established and emerging therapeutic approaches directed at improving independent functional performance and quality of life.
