Sensory signals transmitted from a prosthetic leg to the nervous system helps amputees perceive their prosthetic limb as part of their body. The new neurofeedback helps them perceive the new limb as significantly lighter.
A new method for analyzing brain oscillation data can detect short beta wave bursts in real-time within neural frequency bands of 20 Hertz. The method also shows how rats can increase the occurrences of these bursts.
Neurofeedback training helps reinforce brain patterns associated with motor function while participants complete imaginary motor tasks. The findings may help in the rehabilitation for stroke and other disorders that compromise motor function.
