Tremor: From Pathogenesis to Treatment

Giuliana Grimaldi, Mario Manto
2008 Synthesis Lectures on Biomedical Engineering  
and translations of lower limbs Angle of lower limbs Acceleration and angle of upper limb movements Frequency of upper limb movements Acceleration of trunk Step and cycle time of walking Metabolic energy  ...  Psychogenic tremor is usually made of a combination of rest, postural, and kinetic components. It often involves preferentially the upper limbs, followed by the head and legs.  ...  Abbreviations: UE: upper extremities, LE: lower extremities. score: 0 = none; 1 = slight (amplitude < 0.5 cm), may be intermittent; 2 = moderate amplitude (0.5-1 cm), may be intermittent; 3 = marked amplitude  ...

Brain-Machine Interfaces: From Basic Science to Neuroprostheses and Neurorehabilitation

Mikhail A. Lebedev, Miguel A. L. Nicolelis
2017 Physiological Reviews  
BMI studies have shown neural control over the movements of robotic and virtual actuators that enact both upper and lower limb functions.  ...  The classic goals of BMIs are 1) to unveil and utilize principles of operation and plastic properties of the distributed and dynamic circuits of the brain and 2) to create new therapies to restore mobility  ...  BMI Control of Virtual and Robotic Limbs Motor BMIs that enable upper limb functionality, for example, a BMI for arm reaching and grasping (114) (FIGURE 5), have received particular attention because of  ...

Exploiting evolutionarily conserved pathways to promote plasticity of human spinal circuits

Gregory E P Pearcey
2020 Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism  
Humans evolved from species that walked on all 4 limbs, which means that experiments in quadrupeds can guide and support experiments in humans.  ...  This is particularly helpful for neural rehabilitation because the central nervous system is plastic in nature, meaning that activities promoting central nervous system activity can alter subsequent output  ...  reflexes in the upper limbs during combined arm and leg cycling.  ...

XXIst Congress of the European Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery. Implementing Research in Clinical Applications. Maastricht, The Netherlands, September 17-20, 2014: Abstracts

2014 Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery  
The tremor was of an action-postural and kinetic type and affected mainly the upper limbs; there were no other extrapyramidal signs or symptoms.  ...  Stimulated targets are located in the upper part of the caudal insula and seem to respect topography from back to front and top to bottom: the face (3 cases), upper limb (5 cases) and lower limb (3 case  ...  correlated with specific autonomic output such as the diaphragm EMG.  ...
