Summary

The goal of this research program is to determine the potential effectiveness of real-time fMRI training in improving mental control over pain.

Description

A research study that looks at pain and how you experience pain. This research project aims to use virtual reality-based real-time functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (rtfMRI) to assess brain activation during the experience of pain and while subjects attempt to mentally control their pain response.

Intermittent compared to continuous real-time fMRI neurofeedback boosts control over amygdala activation.

Real-time fMRI neurofeedback is a feasible tool to learn the volitional regulation of brain activity. So far, most studies provide continuous feedback information that is presented upon every volume a...

Behavioral interventions for reducing head motion during MRI scans in children.

A major limitation to structural and functional MRI (fMRI) scans is their susceptibility to head motion artifacts. Even submillimeter movements can systematically distort functional connectivity, morp...

Using real-time fMRI brain-computer interfacing to treat eating disorders.

Real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging based brain-computer interfacing (fMRI neurofeedback) has shown encouraging outcomes in the treatment of psychiatric and behavioural disorders. However,...

Apraxia of object-related action does not depend on visual feedback.

Pantomime of tool use is typically affected in neurological patients with apraxia, while at the same time these patients are able to perform the use of the actual tool with less or no errors. This dis...

How Are We Doing?-The Experience of the Merton Home Treatment Team in Gathering Real-Time Feedback and the Impact Upon Service Provision.

To discuss the methods involved in gathering real-time feedback (RTF) by a London Home Treatment Team. We hypothesized that RTF would lead to changes in service provision and improvements in patient a...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect combined with real-time imaging. The real-time image is created by rapid movement of the ultrasound beam. A powerful advantage of this technique is the ability to estimate the velocity of flow from the Doppler shift frequency.

A mechanism of communication with a physiological system for homeostasis, adaptation, etc. Physiological feedback is mediated through extensive feedback mechanisms that use physiological cues as feedback loop signals to control other systems.

Echocardiography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image.

A type of pain that is perceived in an area away from the site where the pain arises, such as facial pain caused by lesion of the VAGUS NERVE, or throat problem generating referred pain in the ear.

Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
