The brain vascular system has an autoregulatory mechanism that maintains blood perfusion within normal limits at the capillary level. Partially due to its clinical importance, it is of interest to better understand the mechanisms involved in vascular regulation. Therefore, using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), we quantitatively investigated(More)
Evidence suggests that somatosensory electrical stimulation (SES) may decrease the degree of spasticity from neural drives, although there is no agreement between corticospinal modulation and the level of spasticity. Thus, stroke patients and healthy subjects were submitted to SES (3 Hz) for 30' on the impaired and dominant forearms, respectively. Motor(More)
