Inclusion criteria

-right-hand dominance for participants who are neurotypical

For Aim 1:

-age range of 18-23

For Aim 2:

  • participants who are neurotypical will be a similar age to the participants with stroke
  • participants who are neurotypical will have no musculoskeletal and neurological conditions
  • participants with stroke will have a single stroke incident resulting in a unilateral lesion (ischemic and hemorrhagic)
  • participants with stroke will be in the chronic phase (>1 year from stroke onset)
  • participants with stroke will have an onset of stroke after the age of 18
  • participants with stroke who meet the criteria of having the capacity to provide informed consent, regardless of aphasia

Exclusion criteria

  • minors
  • pregnant women
  • prisoners
  • adults not capable of consenting on their own behalf.

For Aim 2:

  • participants with stroke who have used antispastic injections in the past six months
  • participants with stroke who have a lesion in the brainstem and/or cerebellum
  • participants with stroke who have a stroke arising due to brain surgery
  • participants with stroke who have hemineglect
