Positive effects of low-intensity treadmill exercise in a rat model of motor recovery after stroke

Takeaway

  • In a rat model of motor recovery following stroke, low-intensity treadmill exercise offered apparent benefits over other exercise regimes in terms of functional recovery and generation of mature neurons in the peri-infarct region.

Why this matters ?

    Results prompt further research into the interplay between exercise types and rehabilitation, and the generalizability of these findings to stroke recovery in humans.
