Upcoming IFESS Webinar on Feb 23 at 13:30 CET.
Mechanisms of Brain-Controlled Functional Electrical Stimulation of Muscles in Neurorehabilitation
Speaker: Matija Milosevic – Assistant Professor – Graduate School of Engineering Science at Osaka University
This talk will present results from several recent studies that investigated mechanisms of cortical re-organization through pairing descending motor commands (i.e., movement intention) with FES to facilitate movement execution. Specifically, I will talk about FES therapy, the utility of non-invasive brain stimulation and motor imagery for activating the motor cortex, and finally how brain-controlled FES can be used to facilitate central nervous system excitability.
