BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Stroke is a leading cause of long-term motor disability among adults. Present rehabilitative interventions are largely unsuccessful in improving the most severe cases of motor impairment, particularly in relation to hand function. Here we tested the hypothesis that patients experiencing hand plegia as a result of a single, unilateral(More)
During environmental exploration, rats rhythmically whisk their vibrissae along the rostrocaudal axis. Each forward extension of the vibrissa array establishes rapid spatiotemporal contact with an object under investigation. This contact presumably produces equally rapid spatiotemporal patterns of population responses in the vibrissa representation of(More)
Whisker evoked fast oscillations (FOs; >200 Hz) within the rodent posteromedial barrel subfield are thought to reflect very rapid integration of multiwhisker stimuli, yet the pathways mediating FO interactions remain unclear and may involve interactions within thalamus and/or cortex. In the present study using anesthetized rats, a cortical incision was made(More)
In typical magnetoencephalography and/or electroencephalography functional connectivity analysis, researchers select one of several methods that measure a relationship between regions to determine connectivity, such as coherence, power correlations, and others. However, it is largely unknown if some are more suited than others for various types of(More)
Intracortical pathways mediate nonlinear fast oscillation (Ͼ200 Hz) interactions within rat barrel cortex. Hz) within the rodent posteromedial barrel subfield are thought to reflect very rapid integration of multiwhisker stimuli, yet the pathways mediating FO interactions remain unclear and may involve interactions within thalamus and/or cortex. In the(More)
