Stroke is the leading cause of motor disability in the United States. Subcortical motor system strokes, such as those that affect the internal capsule and brainstem, are distinct from cortical strokes in that they leave motor cortex and spinal cord intact but destroy axonal connections between them.

Spinal cord injury (SCI) leads to functional deficit that doesn’t  improve over time. Long standing view in the field of neurorehabilitation is that little to no recovery is possible after adult mammalian SCI.
