Optimal Control Perspective on Parkinson’s Disease: Increased Delay Between State Estimator and Controller Produces Tremor 770 1000 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)
Parkinson’s disease produces tremor in a large subset of patients despite generally inhibiting movement. The pathophysiology of parkinsonian tremor is unclear, leading to uncertainty in how and why treatments reduce tremor with varying effectiveness. Models for parkinsonian tremor attempt to explain the underlying principles of tremor generation in the central nervous system, often focusing on neural activity of specific substructures. read more

Neurofeedback Control in Parkinsonian Patients Using Electrocorticography Signals Accessed Wirelessly With a Chronic, Fully Implanted Device 638 477 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

       Parkinson’s disease (PD) is characterized by motor symptoms such as rigidity and bradykinesia that prevent normal movement. Beta band oscillations (13-30 Hz) in neural local field potentials (LFPs) have…
