Assessing brain temperature can provide important information about disease processes (e.g., stroke, trauma) and therapeutic effects (e.g., cerebral hypothermia treatment). Whole-brain magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (WB-MRSI) is increasingly used to quantify brain metabolites across the entire brain. However, its feasibility and reliability for estimating brain temperature needs further validation. Therefore, the present study evaluates the reproducibility of WB-MRSI for temperature ma...

BACKGROUND:Infarct size and location account for only a relatively small portion of post-stroke motor impairment, suggesting that other less obvious factors may be involved. OBJECTIVE:Examine the relationship between white matter hyperintensity (WMH) load among other factors and upper extremity motor deficit in patients with mild to moderate chronic stroke. METHODS:The magnetic resonance images of 28 patients were studied. WMH load was assessed as total WMH volume and WMH overlap with the cortic...

Background. Constraint-Induced Movement therapy (CIMT) has controlled evidence of efficacy for improving real-world paretic limb use in non-progressive physically disabling disorders (stroke, cerebral palsy). Objective. This study sought to determine whether this therapy can produce comparable results with a progressive disorder such as multiple sclerosis (MS). We conducted a preliminary phase II randomized controlled trial of CIMT versus a program of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)...

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of nonprogressive neuro-developmental conditions occurring in early childhood that causes movement disorders and physical disability. Measuring activity levels and gait patterns is an important aspect of CP rehabilitation programs. Traditionally, such programs utilize commercially available laboratory systems, which cannot to be utilized in community living. In this study, a novel, shoe-based, wearable sensor system (pediatric SmartShoe) was tested on 11 healthy ch...

The purpose of this case study was to determine if a subject with chronic high tetraplegia (C3 AIS A) could learn to use an initially paralyzed upper extremity on the basis of training procedures alone. Initially, an AIS examination revealed no purposive movement below the neck other than minimal shoulder movement. Training was carried out weekly over 39 months. Training began based on electromyographic biofeedback; the electrical activity of a muscle (biceps or triceps) was displayed visually o...
