    See Ward (doi:10.1093/brain/awv265) for a scientific commentary on this article. Disrupted network interactions are associated with neurological deficits after stroke, but the significance of these interactions for post-stroke plasticity is less clear. Nicolo et al. show that language and motor improvement is associated with synchronisation of oscillations. Specific frequencies are preferred for recovery-related interactions, dependent on hemisphere and post-stroke interval
