Contribution of ultrasonography in evaluating traumatic lesions of the peripheral nerves
DiscussionIn acute situations, US is most useful in EDx complete TPNL to differentiate between nerve axonotmesis and neurotmesis. High-velocity trauma, lacerations, and bone fractures are all risk factors for neurotmesis. In chronic situations, US is useful in cases of functionally inefficient reinnervation, neuropathic pain, or progressive nerve dysfunction. In such patients, the surrounding tissues and the relation of the nerve to any OSM need to be carefully examined. US examination is probably not needed in patients with TPNL following acute blunt trauma, only minor clinical deficits and/or slightly/moderately abnormal...

Relieving peripheral neuropathic pain by increasing the power-ratio of low-β over high-β activities in the central cortical region with EEG-based neurofeedback: Study protocol for a controlled pilot trial (SMRPain study)
The objective of this single-centre, single-blinded, randomized controlled pilot study is to assess the value of an EEG-NFB procedure to relieve chronic neuropathic pain in patients with painful peripheral neuropathy. A series of 32 patients will be randomly assigned to one of the two following EEG-NFB protocols, aimed at increasing either the low-β(SMR)/high-β ratio (n = 16) or the α(μ)/θ ratio (n = 16) at central (rolandic) cortical level. Various clinical outcome measures will be collected before and one week after 12 EEG-NFB sessions performed over 4 weeks. Resting-stat...

The sensory role of the sole of the foot: Review and update on clinical perspectives
Publication date: Available online 29 January 2020Source: Neurophysiologie CliniqueAuthor(s): Frederic J.F. ViseuxSummaryThe feet constitute an important sensory structure in the mechanisms of postural control. As a direct and often only interface between the body and the ground, the feet allow us to sense and interact with our environment. Sensory information provided by muscle and cutaneous afferents in the foot contribute to our ability to stand upright, and postural sway is necessary to detect both position and motion of the body in space. A decline in foot sole skin sensitivity occurs naturally with aging and as a res...

Precise finger somatotopy revealed by focal motor cortex injury
We report a young man presenting recurrent ischemic strokes with selective finger weakness in whom serial motor cortex mapping procedures were performed.ResultFollowing the first stroke, which largely spared the motor cortex, motor mapping displayed overlap of the motor representations of the hand muscles. The second focal stroke, affecting the lateral part of the hand knob, resulted in selective loss of the first dorsal interosseous muscle motor evoked potentials while sparing those of the adductor digiti minimi muscle. This observation is in apparent contradiction with the first mapping results that suggested complete ov...

Large body sways help maintaining balance by increasing the transmission of cutaneous input following prolonged periods of reduced body oscillations: EEG, microneurography and behavioral evidence
DiscussionThe hypothesis of a depressed sensory transmission during continued skin compression was supported by our microneurographic recordings showing adaptation/suppression of tactile fibres discharge during continuous pressure applied to the mechanoreceptors. Finally, the hypothesis that large sways during standing correspond to a self-generated functional behaviour to release skin compression is supported by cortical source and EMG analyses showing respectively that large sways were preceded by activation of cortical areas known to be engaged in motor planning (supplementary motor area and dorsolateral prefrontal cort...
