Cortical reorganization and associated functional motor recovery after virtual reality in patients with chronic stroke: an experimenter-blind preliminary study.
TLDR
This is a novel demonstration of VR-induced neuroplastic changes and associated motor recovery in chronic stroke. Expand
mRNA Expression of Cytokines and Chemokines in Herniated Lumbar Intervertebral Discs
TLDR
Interleukin-8 appears to be associated with development of radicular pain by back extension and to be activated on acute or subacute disc herniations, which implies that it may be considered a target for therapeutic intervention. Expand
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation–Induced Corticomotor Excitability and Associated Motor Skill Acquisition in Chronic Stroke
TLDR
High-frequency rTMS of the affected motor cortex can facilitate practice-dependent plasticity and improve the motor learning performance in chronic stroke victims. Expand
Virtual Reality–Induced Cortical Reorganization and Associated Locomotor Recovery in Chronic Stroke: An Experimenter-Blind Randomized Study
TLDR
This is the first fMRI study in the literature that provides evidence for neuroplasticity and associated locomotor recovery after VR and suggests that VR could induce cortical reorganization from aberrant ipsilateral to contralateral SMC activation. Expand
Use of Virtual Reality to Enhance Balance and Ambulation in Chronic Stroke: A Double-Blind, Randomized Controlled Study
TLDR
This study demonstrates that virtual reality has an augmented effect on balance and associated locomotor recovery in adults with hemiparetic stroke when added to conventional therapy. Expand
Cortical reorganization induced by virtual reality therapy in a child with hemiparetic cerebral palsy
TLDR
This is the first fMRI study in the literature that provides evidence for neuroplasticity after VR therapy in a child with hemiparetic CP and it was associated with enhanced functional motor skills including reaching, self‐feeding, and dressing. Expand
Cortical reorganization induced by virtual reality therapy in a child with hemiparetic cerebral palsy
Virtual reality (VR) therapy is a new, neurorehabilitation intervention aimed at enhancing motor performance in children with hemiparetic cerebral palsy (CP). This case report investigated theExpand
Dentatorubrothalamic tract in human brain: diffusion tensor tractography study
TLDR
The highest probabilistic location for the DRTT at the thalamus was compatible with the location of the VL nucleus, which could be useful in research on movement control. Expand
Bilateral primary sensori‐motor cortex activation of post‐stroke mirror movements: an fMRI study
TLDR
The motor cortex activation on the non‐stroke side is associated with mirror movements and is correlated with the severity of mirror movements, and it seems that the pathophysiological mechanism of sustained mirror movements in stroke patients involves the unaffected motor cortex. Expand
Changes in red nucleus after pyramidal tract injury in patients with cerebral infarct.
TLDR
It appears that RN in affected hemispheres show elevated levels of neuronal activity during the early stage in patients with a corona radiata infarct, which suggests that RNs in affected Hemispheres are used to compensate for PT injury. Expand
