Motor performance is profoundly influenced by sensory information, yet sensory input can be noisy and uncertain. The basal ganglia and the cerebellum are important in processing sensory uncertainty, as the basal ganglia incorporate the uncertainty of predictive reward cues to reinforce motor programs, and the cerebellum and its connections mitigate the(More)
Recent animal studies have suggested that cortical areas may play a greater role in the modulation of abnormal oscillatory activity in Parkinson's disease (PD) than previously recognized. We investigated task and medication-dependent, EEG-based directional cortical connectivity in the θ (4-7Hz), α (8-12Hz), β (13-30Hz) and low γ (31-50Hz) frequency bands in(More)
UNLABELLED When faced with visual uncertainty during motor performance, humans rely more on predictive forward models and proprioception and attribute lesser importance to the ambiguous visual feedback. Though disrupted predictive control is typical of patients with cerebellar disease, sensorimotor deficits associated with the involuntary and often(More)
Noisy galvanic vestibular stimulation has been associated with numerous cognitive and behavioural effects, such as enhancement of visual memory in healthy individuals, improvement of visual deficits in stroke patients, as well as possibly improvement of motor function in Parkinson's disease; yet, the mechanism of action is unclear. Since Parkinson's and(More)
The pathophysiology of L-dopa-induced dyskinesias (LIDs) in Parkinson's disease (PD) remains poorly understood. The presence of superimposed LIDs clearly differentiates motor performance of dyskinetic from non-dyskinetic PD subjects when they are on medication, but here, we investigated whether their respective motor performance differs while subjects are(More)
