Abnormally-associated movements are one of the most commonly observable signs after capsular infarction. Various studies have related these associated movements to a bilateral activation of motor cortices. This activation has been previously detected by means of Movement-related potentials in several pathologies. Our results show NS' and MP components bilaterally distributed over the scalp. Thus, this technique could be useful in order to elucidate patterns of functional reorganization after capsular stroke.
