A typical prosthetic limb has sensory shortcomings, one of which is lack of kinesthesia. Conventional methods to evoke kinesthesia, which would be required for a precise control of prosthetic limbs, include tendon vibration and skin stretch, but these produce only the sensation of small movements. In this study, tendon vibration is extended to evoke(More)
Proper execution of voluntary movement requires a sensorimotor transformation based on the initial limb state. For example, successfully reaching to a stable target requires the recruitment of different muscle groups depending on limb position at movement initiation. To test whether this transformation could occur at the spinal level, we stimulated the(More)
A pregnant woman with extensive brain lesions on magnetic resonance imaging was tested positive for anti-aquaporin4 (AQP4) antibodies. An open biopsy of the left temporal lobe showed pathological changes in both the white and gray matter. Hematoxylin and eosin, Klüver-Barrera, and myelin basic protein staining results were indicative of demyelination in the(More)
