115 CEREBRAL ADAPTATION ASSOCIATED WITH PERIPHERAL NERVE RECOVERY IN NA 6 Figure 1 Flow diagram patients The diagram shows how many patients were included and excluded at each stage of the study and the reasons. For the three patients excluded at the baseline assessment/randomization stage, it became later apparent that they met an exclusion criterion (two showed bilateral involvement of NA, and for one a history of stroke was missed at the initial screening). Patients were excluded from further analyses if the mean framewise displacement during one or both of the fMRI scans exceeded 0.5mm (excessive motion), or if their mean error rate was more than 3 times the standard deviation above the group mean. Five follow-up assessments were cancelled due to government-mandated closing of our facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
