Figure 3

Functional motor recovery of rats subjected to different training paradigms. Functional improvement of the left, paretic forepaw after photothrombotic stroke measured with the cylinder test (A) and the Adhesive tape removal task (B). Note the clear improvement of both forced (red curve) and voluntary (black curve) training compared to untreated animals (grey curve). (*p <0. 05, ANOVA, Fisher’s test).
