Motor imagery

Motor imagery is a form of therapy that can be used to strengthen arms, hands, feet and/or legs that may have been weakened by stroke. In motor imagery, we mentally rehearse the movement of the affected body parts, without ever actually attempting to perform the movement. In other words, you imagine doing the movement in your mind. For example, you may imagine hitting a golf ball or drinking a cup of tea. Researchers have shown that this "mental rehearsal" actually works, as it stimulates the brain areas responsible for making the weaker arm or leg move.
