Increase in hand muscle strength of stroke patients after somatosensory stimulation
It has been proposed that somatosensory input in the form of peripheral nerve stimulation can influence functional measures of motor performance. We studied the effects of median nerve stimulation onExpand

Contribution of the ipsilateral motor cortex to recovery after chronic stroke
It has been proposed that the intact (ipsilateral) motor cortex play a significant role mediating recovery of motor function in the paretic hand of chronic stroke patients, but this hypothesis hasExpand

Effects of somatosensory stimulation on motor function in chronic cortico-subcortical strokes
Somatosensory stimulation enhances aspects of motor function in patients with chronic, predominantly subcortical infarcts. We investigated the effects of somatosensory stimulation on motor functionExpand

Impact of coil position and electrophysiological monitoring on determination of motor thresholds to transcranial magnetic stimulation
OBJECTIVE We compared motor and movement thresholds to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in healthy subjects and investigated the effect of different coil positions on thresholds and MEPExpand

Balance control in hemiparetic stroke patients: main tools for evaluation.
Balance problems in hemiparetic patients after stroke can be caused by different impairments in the physiological systems involved in postural control, including sensory afferents, movementExpand

Cortical activation during executed, imagined, observed, and passive wrist movements in healthy volunteers and stroke patients
Motor imagery, passive movement, and movement observation have been suggested to activate the sensorimotor system without overt movement. The present study investigated these three covert movementExpand

Transcranial magnetic stimulation in mild to severe hemiparesis early after stroke: a proof of principle and novel approach to improve motor function
Low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the unaffected hemisphere can enhance function of the paretic hand in patients with mild motor impairment. Effects ofExpand

Consensus Paper: Roles of the Cerebellum in Motor Control—The Diversity of Ideas on Cerebellar Involvement in Movement
Considerable progress has been made in developing models of cerebellar function in sensorimotor control, as well as in identifying key problems that are the focus of current investigation. In thisExpand

Randomized, proof-of-principle clinical trial of active transcranial magnetic stimulation in chronic migraine
Background High-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (rTMS-DLPFC) is an effective treatment for depression. Preliminary studies indicatedExpand

Spontaneous cervical artery dissection: an update on clinical and diagnostic aspects.
Spontaneous cervical arterial dissection (SCAD) is a non-traumatic tear or disruption in the wall of the internal carotid arteries or the vertebral arteries. It accounts for about 25% of strokes inExpand
