Cortical Activation in Individuals With Finger Amputation During Mirror Versus Imagery Treatment

2016-07-21 02:23:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Goals : ( a) to examine differences in cortical activity during hand movements with a mirror compared to imagery of the same movements, and (b) to examine correlation between cortical activity during imagery or mirror treatment and the pain and performance measures in finger amputees.

A cross-sectional study of 20 subjects in a Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) preforming mirror therapy hand movement and imagery hand movement. Also, Visual Analogue Scale for pain and the Disability of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) questionnaire and Jebsen Taylor Hand Function Test will be used.

Description

Goals : ( a) to examine differences in cortical activity during hand movements with a mirror compared to imagery of the same movements, and (b) to examine correlation between cortical activity during imagery or mirror treatment and the pain and performance measures in finger amputees.

A cross-sectional one-meeting study of 20 subjects (finger amputees) in a Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) preforming mirror therapy hand movement and imagery hand movement. Also, Visual Analogue Scale for pain and the Disability of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) questionnaire and Jebsen Taylor Hand Function Test will be used.

Influence of mirror therapy and motor imagery on intermanual transfer effects in upper-limb prosthesis training of healthy participants: A randomized pre-posttest study.

The effect that a motor skill trained on one side can lead to improvement in the untrained side is called intermanual transfer. Intermanual transfer can help enhance upper limb prosthetic training. To...

Mobility and satisfaction with a microprocessor-controlled knee in moderately active amputees: a multi-centric randomized crossover trial.

Microprocessor-controlled knees are generally prescribed and reimbursed for active amputees. Recent studies suggested that this technology could be useful for amputees with moderate activity level. We...

Cutaneous sensitivity in unilateral trans-tibial amputees.

To examine tactile sensitivity in the leg and foot sole of below-knee amputees (diabetic n = 3, traumatic n = 1), and healthy control subjects (n = 4), and examine the association between sensation an...

Imagery and verbal thought during rumination and distraction: Does imagery amplify affective response?

Rumination has long been considered a verbal thought process, though emerging evidence suggests that some individuals dwell on maladaptive imagery. This series of studies evaluated imagery and verbal ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of mental images produced by the imagination as a form of psychotherapy. It can be classified by the modality of its content: visual, verbal, auditory, olfactory, tactile, gustatory, or kinesthetic. Common themes derive from nature imagery (e.g., forests and mountains), water imagery (e.g., brooks and oceans), travel imagery, etc. Imagery is used in the treatment of mental disorders and in helping patients cope with other diseases. Imagery often forms a part of HYPNOSIS, of AUTOGENIC TRAINING, of RELAXATION TECHNIQUES, and of BEHAVIOR THERAPY. (From Encyclopedia of Human Behavior, vol. 4, pp29-30, 1994)

Neurons that fire when an animal acts or observes the same action of another thus coding the motor response. They were originally discovered in the premotor and parietal cortex of the monkey and studies have shown that neurons that have a similar mechanism are present in humans. Mirror neurons are theorized to be related to social cognition.

A technique of inputting two-dimensional images into a computer and then enhancing or analyzing the imagery into a form that is more useful to the human observer.

A visual image which is recalled in accurate detail. It is a sort of projection of an image on a mental screen.
