What is this article about?

Spontaneous recovery post ischaemic stroke refers to mechanisms of neural recovery occurring intrinsically within the brain. The amount of recovery seen in the initial few weeks and months post-event is reliant upon several neural mechanisms and processes. The initial two to three months after the event is a crucial period for spontaneous neuroplasticity, the 'naturally-occurring course of neurophysiological repair and cortical reorganisation of language functions'.

This resource was useful for filling in my knowledge about stroke as I do not have much opportunity to care for people that have had a stroke.
