Using Magnetic Resonance (MR) data acquired as part of a feasibility study in stroke rehabilitation, a novel post-processing pipeline was designed and implemented to explore metabolic factors with MR Spectroscopy (MRS). The stroke study looked at the effect of aerobic exercise performed immediately prior to the usual task-specific rehabilitation training. Examining the clinical motor function results in relation to the metabolic data revealed by the MRS pipeline showed some interesting correlations among metabolites and rehabilitation outcomes.
