Human cerebellar lesion studies provide good evidence that the cerebellum contributes to the acquisition of classically conditioned eyeblink responses (CRs). As yet, only one study used more advanced methods of lesion-symptom (or lesion-behavior) mapping to investigate which cerebellar areas are involved in CR acquisition in humans. Likewise, comparatively(More)
There is good evidence that the human cerebellum is involved in the acquisition and timing of classically conditioned eyeblink responses (CRs). Animal studies suggest that the cerebellum is also important in CR extinction and savings. Cerebellar transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) was reported to modulate CR acquisition and timing in a polarity(More)
Earlier work of our group showed that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of the cerebellum modulated acquisition of classically conditioned eyeblink responses (Zuchowski et al. Brain Stim 2014). Anodal tDCS led to enhanced acquisition whereas cathodal tDCS reduced it. The first aim of the present study was to replicate these earlier findings.(More)
Changes in parameters of the EEG power density spectrum were demonstrated in four healthy male subjects during fatiguing static muscle contractions (M. biceps brachii dexter). For the following EEG frequency bands (delta 1-4 Hz, theta 4-8 Hz, alpha 8-13 Hz, beta 13-20 Hz), the relative power and the peak frequencies were determined. A significant increase(More)
With increasing pulse rate (up to 150 square pulses/sec) applied for 1 second at the gastrocnemius and soleus muscle the amplitude of electromyographic response was found to decrease. An amplitude decrease of sum action potentials (AP) recorded from the muscle surface occurred already at pulse rates below 100 pulses/sec. For the gastrocnemius muscle, this(More)
