A critical time window for recovery extends beyond one-year post-stroke

Previous studies in humans suggest that there is a 3- to 6-months “critical window” of heightened neuroplasticity poststroke. We analyze the temporal structure of recovery in patients with hemiparesis and uncover a precise gradient of enhanced sensitivity to treatment that expands far beyond the limits of the so-called critical window. These findings highlight the need for providing therapy to patients at the chronic and late chronic stages.

Coordinated representational reinstatement in the human hippocampus and lateral temporal cortex during episodic memory retrieval

We analyze the temporal structure of recovery in patients with hemiparesis and uncover a precise gradient of enhanced sensitivity to treatment that expands far beyond the limits of the so-called critical window.
