  1. List 5 proposed mechanisms for neural plasticity (EBRSR)
    • 1. synaptogenesis
    • 2. collateral sprouting
    • 3. diaschisis
    • 4. vicariation
    • 5. redundancy
  2. List the 4 main lacunar strokes and the anatomical sites typically responsible for the classic lacunar strokes. 
    • 1. pure motor: posterior limb, internal capsule
    • 2. pure sensory: thalamus
    • 3. dysarthria/clumsy hand: pons (ant limb IC too)
    • 4. hemiballismus: subthalamic nucleus
  3. Give 4 absolute contraindications to resuming
    driving following stroke.
    • 1. homonymous hemianopsia
    • 2. seizure
    • 3. contralateral neglect
    • 4. poor vision
    • 5. poor coordination
    • 6. impaired distance judgment
    • 7. impaired attention, divided attention, judgment
    • 8. poor arousal

    PMR secrets
  4. Name 2 types of recovery after stroke
    • 1. Neurological or intrinsic recovery
    • 2. Functional or adaptive recovery
  5. What are 3 local mechanisms of recovery after a
    stroke?
    • 1. Resolution of edema (weeks to 2 months)
    • 2. Reperfusion of ischemic penumbra (hours to
    • weeks)
    • 3. Recovery of Diaschisis (days to months) ¬†

    • Delisa
    • Review notes
  6. What are 3 mechanisms of recovery from CNS
    Reorganization?
    • 1. Neurotransmitter changes (weeks to years)
    • 2. Unmasking ipsilateral/alternate pathways
    • (immediate to few months)
    • 3. Synaptogenesis (weeks to months)
