  1. I have a left hand that is affected by a stroke 4.5 years ago. i am trying mirror th. for 4 periods of 15min a day for a total of 1 hour/day. I am committed to do this for 10 weeks.
    Does it work? Not sure but been only at it for 10 days. i know self observation cause-effect is difficult to prove but i suspect my adversion to using my hand has been minimized. Does this mean my hand is “cured”? No it means the resistance to use it may have changed– stay tuned. (I have phd in research design but i am structuring this as research.)

    My real tech question is 4x 15 min/day the appropriate amount? Also, can one push thru spasisity 9which i do) or is this counter productive?
