Surface EMG mapping of the human trapezius muscle: the topography of monopolar and bipolar surface EMG amplitude and spectrum parameters at varied forces and in fatigue
TLDR
While the changes in MF reflected metabolic properties and volume conduction phenomena in the muscle, changes in RMS reflected a compensation for the fatigue processes within the muscle. Expand
Magnetic stimulation of the dorsal premotor cortex modulates the Simon effect.
TLDR
RTMS applied to dorsal premotor cortex confirmed a modulation for trials following an incompatible trial, providing new evidence for competition between automatic and controlled response activation as a mechanism underlying the Simon effect. Expand
Using two-dimensional spatial information in decomposition of surface EMG signals.
TLDR
To detect the firing events of the MUs with a high accuracy, as needed for estimation of firing synchrony, two-dimensional information from the complete grid electrode appears essential. Expand
Sensitivity and specificity of the ‘Awaji’ electrodiagnostic criteria for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: Retrospective comparison of the Awaji and revised El Escorial criteria for ALS
TLDR
The new criteria for ALS do not result in a loss of specificity and can potentially improve the sensitivity by 16%. Expand
Firing pattern of fasciculations in ALS
TLDR
Firing pattern analysis, based on high-density surface EMG, can detect fasciculation potentials (FPs) of axonal and neuronal origin in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and recognizes the existence of two types of FP that can be studied in a noninvasive manner. Expand
Muscle ultrasonography: A diagnostic tool for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
TLDR
Muscle ultrasound can differentiate between amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and mimics with high sensitivity and specificity, and is a sensitive tool to screen for regional lower motor neuron involvement. Expand
The α-motoneuron pool as transmitter of rhythmicities in cortical motor drive
TLDR
The findings show that rhythmicities are translated into alpha-motoneuron activity without strong non-linearities and rectification of the EMG signal enhances the transmission gain, but lowers coherence and introduces a strong frequency dependency. Expand
Magnetic stimulation‐induced modulations of motor unit firings extracted from multi‐channel surface EMG
TLDR
The noninvasive assessment of motor unit (MU) firing patterns on the basis of topographical information from 128‐channel high‐density surface electromyography (SEMG) is reported and can be used to investigate MU firing patterns in patients with central motor disorders. Expand
Expectancy Induces Dynamic Modulation of Corticospinal Excitability
TLDR
TMS results revealed a modulation of corticospinal excitability in correspondence with response signal expectancy, and included an increased excitability over the time-course of the preparatory delay, which transiently increased whenever a response signal was expected. Expand
Pulsed high-dose dexamethasone versus standard prednisolone treatment for chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (PREDICT study): a double-blind, randomised, controlled trial
TLDR
Pulsed high-dose dexamethasone treatment did not induce remission more often than prednisolone treatment, but comparison with intravenous immunoglobulin treatment is needed. Expand
