Cortical stimulation is being investigated as a possible tool to support stroke rehabilitation. In particular the analysis of stimulation-evoked neural activity during the rehabilitation process might be helpful to gain a better understanding of the brain reorganization associated with functional recovery after stroke. In this paper, the stimulation-evoked brain activity from a patient with implanted epidural electrodes undergoing an intervention using of brain-computer interfaces combined with…

Control of transcranial brain stimulation by a brain-computer interface based loop


Non-invasive brain stimulation: a new strategy to improve neurorehabilitation after stroke?
Invasive cortical stimulation to promote recovery of function after stroke: a critical appraisal.
Cortical stimulation with rehabilitation should understand the principle of homeostatic plasticity; the effect of ongoing cortical activity and phases of learning; and that subject-specific intervention may be necessary.
Modulation of electroencephalographic responses to transcranial magnetic stimulation: evidence for changes in cortical excitability related to movement
It is suggested that the N100 component represents an inhibitory response following TMS, in agreement with intracellular recordings in animals, paired‐pulse TMS studies and experiments showing increased premovement excitability on the basis of MEPs.
Real-Time Adaptive Microstimulation Increases Reliability of Electrically Evoked Cortical Potentials
Results indicate that local field potentials contain sufficient information about ongoing local signal processing to stabilize electrically evoked potentials and anticipate that adaptive low intensity microstimulation will play an important role in future cortical prosthetic devices that aim at restoring lost sensory functions.
Chronic motor cortex stimulation for the treatment of central pain.
The effect of stimulation on pain and capability of producing muscle twitch disappeared simultaneously in these cases and the effect reappeared after the revisions, indicating that appropriate stimulation of the motor cortex is definitely necessary for obtaining satisfactory pain control in these patients.
BCCI - A Bidirectional Cortical Communication Interface
A refined approach for stroke rehabilitation as well as the extension of the use of invasive cortical stimulation to ALS patients are proposed with an experimental setup inspired by classical conditioning to facilitate the communication with brain-computer interfaces for LIS and CLIS patients.
Coupling BCI and cortical stimulation for brain-state-dependent stimulation: methods for spectral estimation in the presence of stimulation after-effects
This work shows that the combination of BCIs controlled with spectral features and cortical stimulation in a closed-loop fashion is possible when the influence of stimulation after-effects on spectral estimation is minimized.
Reproducibility of TMS—Evoked EEG responses
The results suggest that nTMS‐EEG is a reliable tool for studies investigating cortical excitability changes in the test‐retest designs.
