Participant Characteristics in Relation to Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor Val66Met Polymorphisma

  • ↵a Values are mean±standard error of the mean, except for the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale, for which values are median (interquartile range). Scores on the arm motor Fugl-Meyer scale (FM) reflect moderate-to-severe arm motor deficits (maximum score=66; higher is better). Scores on the Nottingham Sensory Assessment reflect overall mild sensory deficits (maximum score=17; higher is better). Scores on the Geriatric Depression Scale reflect overall mild depression symptoms (higher is worse; scores >10 generally consistent with depression). M=male, F=female, Y=yes, N=no, L=left, R=right.
