Previous studies on sensorimotor adaptation revealed no awareness of the nature of the perturbation after adaptation to an abrupt 30° rotation of visual feedback or after adaptation to gradually introduced perturbations. Whether the degree of awareness depends on the magnitude of the perturbation, though, has as yet not been tested. Instead of using(More)
Autism spectrum disorder is a developmental disorder characterized by deficits in social and communication skills and repetitive and stereotyped interests and behaviours. Although not part of the diagnostic criteria, individuals with autism experience a host of motor impairments, potentially due to abnormalities in how they learn motor control throughout(More)
Ageing generally leads to impairments in cognitive function and the ability to execute and learn new movements. While the causes of these impairments are often multi-factorial, integrity of the cerebellum in an elderly population is an important predictive factor of both motor function and cognitive function. A similar association between cerebellar(More)
This case series examines triple arthrodesis using articular cartilage excision without bone resection. Due to the technically demanding nature of triple arthrodesis, the authors present a nonresection technique with its perceived advantages over joint resection triple arthrodesis in the presence of reducible deformity, such as minimal shortening of bone,(More)
Several studies have identified transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) as a potential tool in the rehabilitation of cerebellar disease. Here, we tested whether tDCS could alleviate motor impairments of subjects with cerebellar degeneration. Three groups took part in this study: 20 individuals with cerebellar degeneration, 20 age-matched controls,(More)
The control of grip forces when moving a hand held object is impaired in patients with cerebellar degeneration. We asked the question whether after-effects of anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) applied to the lateral cerebellum or M1 improved grip force control in cerebellar patients. Grip force control while holding an object during(More)
Dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by increased muscular tone for which surgical treatment has met with less than ideal results. Surgical treatment in patients with dystonia is often avoided due to the relative success of medical therapy. However, if expectations stay realistic and if the patient with dystonia is continuously evaluated,(More)
