"Constraint therapy" for stroke victims may help them regain function

This AP story concerns a fascinating therapy for stroke victims who lost partial use of one arm.

Their strong arm was restrained during two weeks of intensive therapy, forcing them to use the weakened one, and to "rewire" the brain. Most people saw significant improvement.

As the cliche goes, use it or lose it!
