  • Operant Conditioning of Spinal Reflexes for Motor Rehabilitation after CNS Damage

    Spinal reflex behaviors can be changed through operant conditioning, in which modification of a behavior is brought about by the consequence of that behavior. Spinal reflex conditioning can be used to change a spinal reflex pathway so as to ameliorate movement disabilities due to central nervous system (CNS) damage. This chapter demonstrates that operant conditioning can increase or decrease the soleus H-reflex in neurologically intact people, and investigates whether down-conditioning can reduce abnormal soleus H-reflex excitability in people with incomplete SCI and can thereby alleviate spastic gait. Finally, operant conditioning protocols that focus on modifying EEG activity over sensorimotor cortex might conceivably provide an additional approach to improving cortical control of motor function.

  • Progress in Peripheral Neural Interfaces

    Current developments in peripheral neural interfaces are facilitating their translation to clinical applications such as devices for use in human¿¿-¿¿machine interfaces (HMI) for advanced active prostheses. This chapter talks about the background of the anatomy of the nervous system, and then focuses mainly on the progress and methods used to address three challenges. The three challenges include (i) interface selectivity, (ii) device reach, and (iii) implanted device long-term stability and biocompatibility outlined for the extrafascicular and intrafascicular approaches. The chapter briefly discusses the state of the art of devices for each approach. Finally, it highlights the key advances such as the application of microfabrication techniques and the translation from animal to human. Advances in device modeling and cursory investigations of the use of nanotechnologies and the relevance of each in overcoming current issues of the state of the art are also discussed.

  • Physiology of Muscle Activation and Force Generation

    This chapter describes the physiology of muscle activation and force generation. It discusses the anatomy of the final common pathway from the nervous system to muscle, the electrical properties of motor neurons and muscle fibers, and the contractile properties of muscle fibers and motor units. The chapter presents the concept of motor unit types and the control of muscle force by modulating the recruitment and rate coding of motor unit activity. The muscle unit comprises the muscle fibers innervated by a single motor neuron and corresponds to the peripheral element of the motor unit. The combinations of motor unit recruitment and rate coding that contribute to the actions performed by a muscle vary across its operating range, which requires caution when interpreting details about the activation signal from surface EMG recordings. EMG recordings of muscle fiber action potentials provide information about the activation of motor neurons.

  • Peripheral and Spinal Plasticity after Nerve Injuries

    Peripheral nerves contain several types of nerve fibers, serving different functions. Peripheral nerve injuries induce a cascade of events, at the molecular, cellular, and system levels, that support axonal regeneration and target reinnervation in the periphery, but also imply plastic changes at the spinal cord and the brain. Mechanisms involved in these changes include alterations of excitatory and inhibitory synaptic connections, sprouting of new connections, and reorganization of sensory and motor maps in the nervous system. All these changes have to be considered when attempting to interact with the injured nervous system for rehabilitation strategies.
