ute;nera Carlos A. Cifuentes Brain–computer interface (BCI) remains an emerging tool that seeks to improve the patient interaction with the therapeutic mechanisms and to generate neuroplasticity progressively through neuromotor abilities. Motor imagery (MI) analysis is the most used paradigm based on the motor cortex’s electrical activity to detect movement intention. It has been shown that motor imagery mental practice with movement-associated stimuli may offer an effective strategy to facilitate motor recovery in brain injury patients. In this sense, this study aims to present the BCI associated with vi...

ConclusionThe ddSVD algorithm better correlates with DWI follow-up infarct volume than DISD processing. The DISD algorithm overestimated larger ischemic cores which may lead to patient exclusion from thrombectomy based on selection by core volume.

STROKES are one of the leading causes of death in the UK, and unfortunately around 100,000 people have strokes each year. It is important to act quickly if you spot a symptom of a stroke, as the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is likely to happen.

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: The present study aimed to observe the therapeutic effect of elastic bandages on improving knee hyperextension in patients with stroke after correcting the foot varus.METHODS: A total of 45 patients with stroke admitted to the hospital from January to August 2019 were enrolled in the present prospective study. Elastic bandages were used to fix the affected foot in a mild valgus position. Before and after the intervention, the Noitom walking function evaluation system was adopted, and the Timed Up and Go (TUG) t...

This article presents possible factors influencing the profile of evolution of neglect towards recovery or chronicity, and highlights potential mechanisms that may constrain these processes in time and space. The integrity of white matter pathways within and between the hemisphere appears to pose crucial connectivity constraints for compensatory brain plasticity from remote brain regions. Specifically, the availability of a sufficient degree of inter-hemispheric connectivity might be critical to shift the role of the undamaged left hemisphere in spatial neglect, from exerting maladaptive effects, to promoting compensatory ...

Prog Brain Res. 2021;265:249-315. doi: 10.1016/bs.pbr.2021.06.007. Epub 2021 Aug 12.ABSTRACTMilitary personnel often exposed to high summer heat are vulnerable to heat stroke (HS) resulting in abnormal brain function and mental anomalies. There are reasons to believe that leakage of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) due to hyperthermia and development of brain edema could result in brain pathology. Thus, exploration of suitable therapeutic strategies is needed to induce neuroprotection in HS. Extracts of Gingko Biloba (EGb-761) is traditionally used in a variety of mental disorders in Chinese traditional medicine since ages. I...
