The first few months of post-stroke recovery is a critical time period where spontaneous changes in language functions and underlying neural processes are observed. Imaging brain changes during this time may help clinicians identify the recovery of neural processes, but must be done in a way that is not confounded by stroke- induced cerebrovascular changes. This is important, as evidence suggests that cerebrovascular insult will elicit a cascade of changes that leads to vascular remodeling in th...
