  1. No differences were found between two groups at each testing time point. NIHSS was estimated at week 0 (baseline), week 1 (during the intervention), week 3 (after treatment), and week 7 (follow-up); FMA, MMSE, and MoCA were assessed at week 0, week 3, and week 7; VFSS was evaluated at week 0 and week 7
