resting-state fMRI studies in stroke patients claim that rs-fMRI measurements is behaviorally
relevant. However, most of these studies enroll stoke patients with high heterogeneity. In
this study, twenty-three rats underwent photothrombotic stroke lesioning in the PLIC
with minimal affect to the nearby area. We monitor longitudinal
resting-state brain activity and behavior change in this highly homogeneous white matter infarct rat model by using fcMRI and rat behavior test and try to find out the most behaviorally relevant fcMRI measurements. This project is still going on.
