Neurophysiological approaches to chronic pain following spinal cord injury
Pain occurring in patients with spinal cord injury can be classified on clinical grounds into five types: peripheral, central, visceral, mechanical and psychic. An attempt has been made to correlateExpand

Suprasegmentally induced motor unit activity in paralyzed muscles of patients with established spinal cord injury
In an attempt to demonstrate the presence of functional descending fibers in patients with clinically apparent functional spinal cord transection, we examined electromyographically recorded paralyzedExpand

Functional magnetic resonance imaging of the human motor cortex before and after whole-hand afferent electrical stimulation.
Electrical stimulation of the whole hand using a mesh-glove has been shown to improve volitional movement of the hand and arm, and decrease muscle hypertonia after hemispherical stroke in patientsExpand

Motor control in the human spinal cord.
Features of the human spinal cord motor control are described using two spinal cord injury models: (i) the spinal cord completely separated from brain motor structures by accidental injury; (ii) theExpand

Spinal cord stimulation for the control of spasticity in patients with chronic spinal cord injury: I. Clinical observations.
The effectiveness of spinal cord stimulation for control of spasticity was studied in 59 spinal cord injury patients. SCS was markedly or moderately effective in reducing spasticity in 63% of theExpand
