The connection between rhythmicity and brain function

  title={The connection between rhythmicity and brain function},

  journal={IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine},
We first present some clinical research results involving rhythmic facilitation and motor control. We then discuss synchronization strategies for sensorimotor coupling pertaining to rhythmic entrainment mechanisms; followed by trajectory cuing and optimization models as they relate to rhythmic entrainment and movement control; and, finally, the outlook for applications that may help rehabilitate motor function. Our interest in the study of the connections between rhythm, time, and the control… CONTINUE READING
