The primary somatosensory cortex (S1) in adult animals and humans is capable of rapid modification after deafferentation. These plastic changes may account for a loss of tonic control by nociceptive…
Single cell recording in non-human primates shows plastic changes of cortical somatic representations across different types of somatic inputs originating from the same peripheral territory. In humans, muscle afferents from…
OBJECTIVE: To assess the effectiveness of a rehabilitative training program for deficits in somatic sensation and motor control of the hand in patients with pure sensory stroke. DESIGN: Multiple baseline…
The effect of short-term light deprivation on tactile spatial acuity was evaluated by asking 28 adult humans to perform a grating orientation task. The 14 subjects who were kept for…
BACKGROUND: Motor and nonmotor timing functions and cross-modal processing of visual-tactile signals may be linked to basal ganglia. These neural structures are thought to be dysfunctional in dystonia. OBJECTIVE: To…
Unilateral and bilateral electrotactile stimuli were delivered to both hands of 11 right-brain-damaged (RBD) patients with left tactile extinction and 20 healthy subjects. Bimanual stimuli could be presented simultaneously or…
Neurophysiological studies in animals show that basal ganglia are involved not only in motor and nonmotor timing functions but also in integrating tactile and visual signals delivered in the peripersonal…
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate short- and medium-term effects of peripheral repetitive magnetic stimulation (rMS) on myofascial pain. METHODS: Eighteen patients who presented with myofascial trigger points (TPs) at the level of…
