Effects of Cerebellum or Supplementary Motor Area Functional Inactivation on Gait and Balance Control

2016-11-30 15:45:32 | BioPortfolio

Summary

In human, the physiology of gait and balance is not clearly established. By using functional imaging and electrophysiological techniques, various brain regions from the cortex to the midbrain area, including the cerebellum, have been identified as involved in such control. The specific role of these structures in both the capacity to go forward (locomotion) and stand upright (balance), but also in the different phases of the gait initiation process, are not known, however. In this study,the investigators aimed to assess the specific role of both the supplementary motor area (SMA) and the cerebellum in postural control during the initiation of gait. For this purpose, the investigators plan to study the gait initiation in 20 healthy subjects before and after functional inactivation (using inhibitory repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, rTMS) of the cerebellum or SMA. Biomechanical, kinematic and electromyographic parameters of the gait initiation will be recorded using a force platform, reflective markers with infrared cameras (VICON system) and lower limbs surface EMG electrodes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.

Measurable changes in activities in the CEREBRAL CORTEX upon a stimulation. A change in cortical excitability as measured by various techniques (e.g., TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION) is associated with brain disorders.

A technique of brain electric stimulation therapy which uses constant, low current delivered via ELECTRODES placed on various locations on the scalp.

A technique that involves the use of electrical coils on the head to generate a brief magnetic field which reaches the CEREBRAL CORTEX. It is coupled with ELECTROMYOGRAPHY response detection to assess cortical excitability by the threshold required to induce MOTOR EVOKED POTENTIALS. This method is also used for BRAIN MAPPING, to study NEUROPHYSIOLOGY, and as a substitute for ELECTROCONVULSIVE THERAPY for treating DEPRESSION. Induction of SEIZURES limits its clinical usage.

Stimulation of the brain, which is self-administered. The stimulation may result in negative or positive reinforcement.
