RésuméLa stimulation laser active sélectivement les thermonocicepteurs et permet ainsi l’enregistrement de réponses corticales spécifiquement liées à la transmission dans les voies spinothalamiques (les potentiels évoqués par laser ou PEL). L’utilité de ces réponses dans le diagnostic de la douleur centrale (DNC) découle du fait que celle-ci est le plus souvent associée à une atteinte des voies thermonociceptives. Les PEL ont montré leur capacité à détecter des lésions même minuscules des syst…

Conception d'une architecture embarquée adaptable pour le déploiement d'applications d'interface cerveau machine. (Design of an adaptable embedded architecture for the deployment of brain-machine interface applications)
TLDR
The main purpose of this thesis is to study and develop an embedded brain computer interface (BCI) system using HW/SW methodology in order to satisfy the system specifications and the proposed ICM platform was designed to control home devices through the thought of people with severe disabilities.

Unmyelinated trigeminal pathways as assessed by laser stimuli in humans.
TLDR
The trigeminal territory yields rewarding LEP findings owing to the high density of thermal receptors and, because the short conduction distance, minimizes the problem of signal dispersion along slow-conducting unmyelinated afferents.
Clinical usefulness of laser-evoked potentials
Cerebral potentials evoked by painful, laser stimuli in patients with syringomyelia.
TLDR
Brief cutaneous heat stimuli generated by a CO2 laser were used to elicit late somatosensory evoked cerebral potentials (SEPc) in 10 patients with syringomyelia to indicate that alteration of SEPc correlates with altered pain sensitivity in patients with a circumscribed spinal lesion.
Laser-evoked potential abnormalities in central pain patients: the influence of spontaneous and provoked pain.
TLDR
It is concluded that, as currently recorded, LEPs essentially reflect the activity of a 'lateral' pain system subserved at the periphery by rapidly conducting A-delta fibres, and are useful to document the sensorial deficits leading to neuropathic pain syndromes.
Mechanisms of central neuropathic pain: a combined psychophysical and fMRI study in syringomyelia.
TLDR
No significant difference was found in the magnitude or extent of sensory deficits between patients with or without neuropathic pain, suggesting that lesions of the spinothalamic pathways are not sufficient for developing central pain.
Clinical utility of pain--laser evoked potentials.
Human cerebral potentials evoked by CO2 laser stimuli causing pain
TLDR
The similarity of these components indicates that both EPs may be secondary responses to afferent input into neural centers, onto which myelinated and unmyelinated fibres converge, and may explain why ultralate EPs are not reliably present without peripheral nerve block.
