Combined psychophysical and neurophysiological studies have shown that the perceived roughness of surfaces with element spacings of >1 mm is based on spatial variation in the firing rates of slowly adapting type 1 (SA1) afferents (mean absolute difference in firing rates between SA1 afferents with receptive fields separated by approximately 2 mm).

Mobile health tools that enable clinicians and researchers to monitor the type, quantity, and quality of everyday activities of patients and trial participants have long been needed to improve daily care, design more clinically meaningful randomized trials of interventions, and establish cost-effective, evidence-based practices. Inexpensive, unobtrusive(More)
BACKGROUND Walking-related disability is the most frequent reason for inpatient stroke rehabilitation. Task-related practice is a critical component for improving patient outcomes. OBJECTIVE To test the feasibility of providing quantitative feedback about daily walking performance and motivating greater skills practice via remote sensing. METHODS In(More)
Neurologic rehabilitation aims to reduce impairments and disabilities so that persons with serious stroke can return to participation in usual self-care and daily activities as independently as feasible. New strategies to enhance recovery draw from a growing understanding of how types of training, progressive task-related practice of skills, exercise for(More)
Lacosamide has been reported to have been successfully used for non-convulsive status epilepticus after benzodiazepine failure, and convulsive status epilepticus after benzodiazepine and levetiracetam failure. We report a case of simple motor status epilepticus refractory to benzodiazepines and multiple anti-epileptic medications (AEDs) over 4 days. The(More)
