The purpose of this study is to investigate whether moderate intensity exercise can improve capacity for neuroplasticity in the brain.

Neuroplasticity is an important brain characteristic that supports recovery after stroke. If we can find ways to enhance neuroplasticity, we might be able to better structure stroke rehabilitation to enable greater recovery.

In this study, participants will attend our neurorehabilitation clinic for a single session and be randomised to either an exercise or rest condition. Brain measures will be performed before and after exercise (or rest).
