We investigated nine patients with acute ischemic stroke in the right hemisphere of the brain. The time course of the severity of PS was assessed using the standardized Scale for Contraversive Pushing. Patients were divided into two groups: the recovery and no recovery groups. Magnetic resonance imaging data were obtained to assess the effect of ischemic lesion sites on the recovery of PS and was analyzed with lesion subtraction technique....
