Effect of transcranial magnetic stimulation on grip strength

Effect of transcranial magnetic stimulation on grip strength

2011-06-01 00:00:00 23m

Research has shown inconsistent evidence for the use of Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) being able to induce significant effects on behavioural measures of motor output in healthy subjects (Huang et al., 2005; Muellbacher et al., 2000; Urbach & Awiszus, 2001). No research has yet compared the effects of different rTMS paradigms on the maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) of an isometric hand grip strength task in a healthy male adult population. This study was designed to examine the differences in maximal voluntary isometric grip strength before and after two rTMS paradigms, namely high frequency (HFS) (pulses in each train repeated every 5Hz) and intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS) (burst of 3 pulses at 30Hz repeated every 5Hz in each train).

Dietary Omega 3 Fatty Acid requirements following minor traumatic brain injury

Abnormal profiles of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the plasma phospholipids were observed in patients with closed head injuries, indicating that the metabolic response to injury encompasses changes

Approaching the back of the Head; Beta reset protocol

This presentation is an introduction of a new protocol, its implications and its use with different disorders. Beta reset protocol was used successfully to treat refractory PTSD and refractory migraines,

QEEG in TBI - The gap between expectation and outcome

Working memory systems in health and disease

An important task of the human central nervous system is to link sensory information to appropriate response. This is the defining characteristic of adaptive behaviour in humans. Such adaptability is

Clinical correlates of traumatic brain injury

Traumatic Brain injury can manifest clinically in a wide variety of physical and mental presentations. The neuropathology and neuroanatomy underlying a number of these clinical manifestations are presented

Who am I ? State, trait and brain wave training

After several months of neurofeedback, a young woman said, “I have never been more myself and never known less who I am.” Although her statement is exceptional, her experience is not. By its nature, neurofeedback affects the nature of those who train. In discussions of neurofeedback, we tend to focus on the alleviation of symptoms. This talk seeks to extend the discussion to the effects neurofeedback has not only on symptoms, but also over time, on personality and identity.

Functional qEEG reports: converging clinical applications into neurofedback protocols.

The quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG) is becoming a viable assessment tool for neurofeedback practitioners. The qEEG information is obtained with comparisons to norm-referenced databases which can be overwhelming to many practitioners. To simplify understanding of the data and improve clinical applicability, we have developed a unique approach to the interpretation of the qEEG.
