The state of sensorimotor cortical oscillations at hand

Units : Laboratory of Neurophysiology and Movement Biomechanics | ULB382

Description :

Beta sensorimotor cortical oscillations are the direct reflection of the state of human sensorimotor brain functions, making them
an abundant topic of fundamental and translational research. Fundamental studies have revealed that beta sensorimotor cortical
oscillations leave a detectable trace in muscle activity and in finger tremor. This project will assess the possibility of assessing
modulations in beta sensorimotor cortical oscillations through inexpensive recordings of signals measurable directly from the
upper limb. In a second phase, it will examine the applicability of such inexpensive means to monitor sensorimotor brain to monitor
the progression of Parkinson’s disease and stroke.
