Delineating the effects of anodal transcranial direct current stimulation on myoelectric control based on slow cortical potentials

Anirban Dutta; Rahima S. Boulenouar; David Guiraud; Michael A. Nitsche 2014 36th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2014

Active cortical participation in rehabilitation procedures may be facilitated by modulating neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) with electromyogram (EMG) and electroencephalogram (EEG) derived biopotentials, that represent simultaneous volitional effort. Here, the ability of the nervous system to respond to intrinsic or extrinsic stimuli by reorganizing its structure, function, and connections is called neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is involved in post-stroke functional disturbances, but ...

In this paper, fMRI is used to study the brain activation in the task of reading Braille characters by two different groups: sighted subjects and congenitally blind people.

Finally, fMRI is proposed as a non- invasive method to study the degree of remaining functional visual cortex in ...


Reinforcement learning of the neocortico-hippocampal system

K. Nakamura Proceedings of 1993 International Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN-93-Nagoya, Japan), 1993

Hypothetical neural mechanisms of how the animal learns to obtain reward by trial and error are presented. To find out which trial was rewarded in what state of environment, two kinds of memory are necessary: (1) short-term memory temporally remembering trials and environmental states in which they are made and (2) long-term memory storing pairs of the trials and states ...

Rhona Guberek; Sheila Schneiberg; Heidi Sveistrup; Patricia McKinley; Mindy F. Levin 2008 Virtual Rehabilitation, 2008

Virtual reality (VR) has enormous potential as an adjunct in therapy. VR has many of the parameters shown to be effective in motor learning. It induces brain plasticity and benefits may be transferable to the physical world. We describe a novel approach to the rehabilitation of the upper limb using video- capture virtual reality technology.

Over the last years there has been witnessed a significant interest, as well as concern, about brain fitness and cognitive training. Not long ago, scientists and experts believed that the human brain was like a sealed box - a physiologically static organ - relatively immutable after the critical period of early childhood. However, this belief has been recently challenged as ...

  • 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.
