Principles of Neurorehabilitation After Stroke Based on Motor Learning and Brain Plasticity Mechanisms
- PsychologyFront. Syst. Neurosci.
This work aims to unify the neuroscientific literature relevant to the recovery process and rehabilitation practice in order to provide a synthesis of the principles that constitute an effective neurorehabilitation approach.
Constraint-induced movement therapy: from history to plasticity
- Medicine, PsychologyExpert review of neurotherapeutics
The focus is on brain plasticity with an emphasis on the importance of the type and location of stroke and how this factor might influence outcomes following CIMT.
Absence of verbal recall or memory for symptom acquisition in fear and trauma exposure: a conceptual case for fear conditioning and learned nonuse in assessment and treatment.
- PsychologyJournal of rehabilitation research and development
It is posited that the literatures of fear conditioning and learned nonuse provide complementary illustrations of how the time and context of the initial trauma(s) and subsequent experiences affect behavior, which is not dependent on the effected individual being able to provide a memory-based verbal report.
Modified Constraint-Induced Therapy in Chronic Stroke
- Psychology, MedicineAmerican journal of physical medicine & rehabilitation
It was concluded that modified constraint-induced therapy may be an effective method of improving affected arm function and use in chronic stroke patients exhibiting learned nonuse.
The behavior-analytic origins of constraint-induced movement therapy: An example of behavioral neurorehabilitation
- Psychology, MedicineThe Behavior analyst
The intervention has been used successfully to substantially improve motor deficits after stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, with cerebral palsy in a pediatric population, and for language impairment in poststroke aphasia.
Operationalisation of the learned non-use phenomenon - A Delphi study.
- Medicine, PsychologymedRxiv
Basic research is needed to bridge the gap between bedside and bench and eventually improve clinical decision making and further development of interventional strategies beyond the field of stroke rehabilitation.
Intention-driven robotic hand rehabilitation system with individuated finger training feature
The author’s aims have been to contribute towards the humanizing of science and the promotion of knowledge and understanding in the areas of medicine and literature.
Constraint-induced movement therapy: a method for harnessing neuroplasticity to treat motor disorders.
- Psychology, MedicineProgress in brain research
Parallels between use of constraint-induced movement therapy to treat neurological motor disorders and amblyopia training.
- Psychology, BiologyDevelopmental psychobiology
Treatments that are efficacious in the remediation of these defects, Constraint-Induced Movement therapy and amblyopia training, also share a number of strong similarities.
The pediatric motor activity log-revised: assessing real-world arm use in children with cerebral palsy.
- Medicine, PsychologyRehabilitation psychology
The PMAL-R interview is a reliable and valid measure of upper-extremity pediatric neurorehabilitation outcome and has high internal consistency and test-retest reliability, as measured by laboratory tests.
