BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: For rehabilitation strategies to be effective, training should be based on principles of motor learning, such as feedback-error learning, that facilitate adaptive processes in the nervous system by inducing errors and recalibration of sensory and motor systems. This case report suggests that locomotor resistance training can enhance somatosensory and corticospinal excitability and modulate resting-state brain functional connectivity in a patient with motor-incomplete spinal cord injury (SCI)...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have proposed a role for robotic gait training in participants with acquired brain injury, but the effects on the excitability of cortical and spinal neurons even in healthy participants are uncertain. OBJECTIVE: To investigate changes in corticospinal excitability in healthy participants after active and passive robotic gait training in a driven gait orthosis (DGO), the Lokomat. METHODS: Thirteen healthy participants took part in 2 experiments...

Neurological diseases - such as spinal cord injury, stroke and traumatic brain injury - frequently result in gait impairment The recovery of the walking ability requires functional training (i.e. walking), as previous research in man and animal has shown. Because the patient usually has reduced voluntary muscle force early after the incident, his/her movements require external support by physical therapists or special robotic devices. The Lokomat is a robotic gait orthosis with electromechanical drives that supports walking on a treadmill with body weight support...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
