K. August; D. Bleichenbacher; S. Adamovich Proceedings of the IEEE 31st Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference, 2005., 2005

Virtual Reality (VR) provides useful rehabilitation applications, motivation, and feedback, for chronic stroke patients who might benefit from intensive massed therapies. Extensive therapy is required to take advantage of brain plasticity to modify neural organization and improve motor skills during the chronic phase after a stroke. Existing measurements used in a clinical setting are expensive, offer gross scales, and are ...

In this paper, the details of processing algorithms used in a training program with language learning-impaired children (LLIs) are described. The training program utilized computer games, speech/language training exercises, books-on- tape and educational CD-ROMs. Speech tracks in these materials were processed using these algorithms.

Orientation Plasticity in Visual Cortex of Mice Reared under Single-Orientation Exposure

Takamasa Yoshida; Toshiki Tani; Shigeru Tanaka 2009 IEEE 8th International Conference on Development and Learning, 2009

To examine whether orientation selectivity in the mouse visual cortex can change depending on visual experience, we reared juvenile and adult mice under single-orientation exposure using cylindrical-lens-fitted goggles that extremely elongate visual images vertically. Immediately after goggle rearing, we performed optical imaging of intrinsic signals in the visual cortex of the mouse, while presenting 6 oriented grating stimuli. The distribution ...

Closed-loop afferent electrical stimulation for recovery of hand function in individuals with motor incomplete spinal injury: Early clinical results

Christopher J. Schildt; Sarah H. Thomas; Elizabeth S. Powell; Lumy Sawaki; Sridhar Sunderam 2016 38th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC), 2016

Afferent electrical stimulation is known to augment the effect of rehabilitative therapy through use-dependent cortical plasticity. Experiments pairing transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) with peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) have shown a timing-dependent effect on motor evoked potential (MEP) amplitude suggesting that PNS applied in closed-loop (CL) mode could augment this effect through positive reinforcement. We present early results from a clinical ...

  • Timed Delivery of Reward Signals in an Autonomous Robot

    In this paper, we implement a computational model of a neuromodulatory system in an autonomous robot. The model is based on a set of anatomical and physiological properties of the mammalian dopamine system, one of several diffuse ascending systems of the brain. The output of this system acts as a value signal, which modulates widely distributed synaptic changes in sensory and motor areas. During reward conditioning, the model learns to generate tonic and phasic responses, which are consistent with potential roles as reward predictions and prediction errors. Different sets of neural units generate precisely timed signals that exert positive effects (predictive) and negative effects (if a predicted reward is omitted) on neuroplasticity. We test the learning and behavior of the robot in different environmental contexts, and observe changes in the development of neural connections within the neuromodulatory system that depend on the robot's interaction with the environment. Simulation of a computational model responsive to rewarding stimuli leads to the emergence of conditioned appetitive behaviors. These studies represent a step towards investigating the behavior of autonomous robots controlled by biologically based neuromodulatory systems

  • Movement-Related Cortical Potentials and Their Application in Brain-Computer Interfacing

    Brain - computer interface (BCI) systems aim at providing a nonmuscular communication and control channel to patients with severe disabilities or at promoting neuroplasticity. Motor imagery is the most common approach to producing electroencephalogram (EEG) changes in EEG-based BCI research. This chapter discusses an alternative approach for distinguishing movement-related parameters, such as speed, for the same imagined task. This approach provides a more intuitive way of control for the user and increases the potential number of commands. The chapter explains a series of studies that analyze the characteristics of movement-related cortical potentials (MRCPs), and explores their potential application to BCI. It describes the characteristics of MRCPs and how these characteristics are modulated by movement parameters, such as speed and torque. It also discusses these results from the viewpoint of applying MRCPs generated during imagined movements of the same joint as control signals for BCIs.
