AbstractDespite the success of functional imaging to map changes in brain activation patterns after stroke, spatiotemporal dynamics of cerebral reorganization in correlation with behavioral recovery remain incompletely characterized. Here, we applied resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI) together with behavioral testing to longitudinally assess functional connectivity within neuronal networks, in relation to changes in associated function after unilateral stroke in rats. Our specific goals were (1) to identify temporal alterations in functional connectivity within the bilateral cortical sensorimotor system and (2) to elucidate the relationship between those alterations and changes in sensorimotor function. Our study revealed considerable loss of functional connectivity between ipsilesional and contralesional primary sensorimotor cortex regions, alongside significant sensorimotor function deficits in the first days after stroke. The interhemispheric functional connectivity restored in the following weeks, but remained significantly reduced up to 10 weeks after stroke in animals with lesions that comprised subcortical and cortical tissue, whereas transcallosal neuroanatomical connections were preserved. Intrahemispheric functional connectivity between primary somatosensory and motor cortex areas was preserved in the lesion border zone and moderately enhanced contralesionally. The temporal pattern of changes in functional connectivity between bilateral primary motor and somatosensory cortices correlated significantly with the evolution of sensorimotor function scores. Our study (1) demonstrates that poststroke loss and recovery of sensorimotor function is associated with acute deterioration and subsequent retrieval of interhemispheric functional connectivity within the sensorimotor system and (2) underscores the potential of rs-fMRI to assess spatiotemporal characteristics of functional brain reorganization that may underlie behavioral recovery after brain injury.
