I'm trying to find out more about corona radiata infarcts and how a patient with an infarct in this area would present and what we therapist can do to improve the patients movement.
So far I know...
In neuroanatomy, the corona radiata is a white matter sheet that continues caudally as the internal capsule and rostrally as the centrum semiovale. This sheet of axons contains both descending and ascending axons that carry nearly all of the neural traffic from and to the cerebral cortex. The corona radiata is associated with the corticospinal tract, the corticopontine tract, and the corticobulbar tract.
i've also found information about an ipsilateral Hemiparesis caused by a corona radiata infarct after a previous stroke on the opposite side.
But if anybody knows more about this topic or can referrer me to any side I would be very thankful
Thanks a lot
