Through magnetic resonance imaging, scientists will now study whether the treatment has produced changes in the functional connectivity of the brain of participants and, in a third phase, they will look for the clinical variables and functional neuroimaging
indicators which could influence positively on the vibration.
The functional neuroimaging
data suggests the mechanism of action of TNS is related to its ability to modulate activity in targeted brain regions.
MEG is a diagnostic functional neuroimaging
technique for mapping brain activity.
In specific, Cortical oscillations will be measured with electroencephalography (eeg) and pre-sma engagement will be measured with functional neuroimaging
(fmri) while the participants will be listening to speech.
"Future studies with larger sample sizes and an adequate follow-up period are required to further investigate the effects of rTMS on lower limb function and its relationship with changes in cortical excitability with the help of functional neuroimaging
techniques," Chengqi said.
Bower, "Cerebellum and auditory function: an ALE meta-analysis of functional neuroimaging
studies," Human Brain Mapping, vol.
data suggests the mechanism of action of electrical stimulation of branches of the trigeminal nerve, including those located near the surface of the forehead, is related to its ability to modulate activity in targeted brain regions.
Neurobiology, physiology, functional neuroimaging
and clinical domains happen to deliver sometimes incommensurable variables, methods and terminology.
Thus, fNIRS is an optimal tool for functional neuroimaging
applications in epidemiological studies that take place in remote environments.
Using functional neuroimaging
tools, such as SPECT, are essential to developing precision medicine brain treatments in the future."
Both structural and functional neuroimaging
studies have revealed a decline in older adults in volume and function of prefrontal brain regions, supporting the decline of executive control.
