We present a novel method that extends current CLSM approaches by introducing a fast reliable and accurate way for computing disconnectomes, i.e. identifying damaged or lesioned connections. We introduce a new algorithm that finds the maximally disconnected subgraph containing regions and region pairs with the greatest shared connectivity loss. After normalizing a stroke patient's segmented MRI lesion into template space, probability weighted structural connectivity matrices are constructed from shortest paths found in white matter voxel graphs of 210 subjects from the Human Connectome Project. Percent connectivity loss ma...

Predictors for post-sepsis myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke are yet to be identified due to the competing risk of death. Baseline comorbidities and sources of infection were associated with an increased risk of post-sepsis MI and stroke. The identified risk factors may help physicians select a group of patients with sepsis who may benefit from preventive measures, antiplatelet treatment, and other preventive measures for post-sepsis MI and stroke.

We report on two studies that examine whether or not these principles also apply in language re-learning and retention for individuals with acquired deficits in written language production. Study 1 compared distributed vs. clustered training schedules, while Study 2 examined—for the first time in the context of re-learning—the relationship between the spacing of training trials and retention period. This investigation revealed that, despite significant cognitive deficits and brain lesions, remarkably similar principles govern re-learning and retention in the lesioned brain as have been found to apply in neurolo...
