Recovery after stroke is highly varied. Biomarkers may be used to predict recovery trajectories and match patients with therapies. This talk will review potential biomarkers of stroke recovery and suggest how a better understanding of the neurobiology of stroke informs brain health.

Objectives:
I. Discuss neuroplastic change after stroke
II. Review variability in stroke recovery
III . Consider potential biomarkers of stroke recovery
