It is well known that the motor area of one hemisphere of the brain (motor cortex) controls the movement of the opposite of the body. However, it is not clear whether as the movement becomes more complicated, the motor cortex of both hemispheres of the brain are involved. Currently the role of the motor cortex on the same side of the body (referred to as ipsilateral motor cortex) in hand performance remains controversial. The investigators demonstrated previously in healthy subjects that transiently lowering the activity of ipsilateral motor cortex improved the performance of the opposite hand. What is not know are the mechanisms involved in these changes of behavior. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a device that allows the non- invasive stimulation of the brain. When brain is stimulated repetitively at a very low rate and low intensity for about 15 minutes, the stimulated brain area becomes less active. This effect lasts 10 minutes and is called a transient artificial lesion as it ...

Perceiving speech engages parts of the motor system involved in speech production. The role of the motor cortex in speech perception has been demonstrated using low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) to suppress motor excitability in the lip representation and disrupt discrimination of lip-articulated speech sounds (Möttönen and Watkins, 2009). Another form of rTMS, continuous theta-burst stimulation (cTBS), can produce longer-lasting disruptive effects following a brief train of stimulation. We investigated the effects of cTBS on motor excitability and discrimination of speech and non-speech sounds. cTBS was applied for 40 s over either the hand or the lip representation of motor cortex. Motor-evoked potentials recorded from the lip and hand muscles in response to single pulses of TMS revealed no measurable change in motor excitability due to cTBS. This failure to replicate previous findings may reflect the unreliability of measurements of motor excitability related to

Motor cortex stimulation (MCS) is used for alleviating neuropathic pain, but the mechanism of action is still unclear. This study aimed to understand the mechanism of action of MCS by investigating pain-signaling pathways, with the expectation that MCS would regulate both descending and ascending pathways. Methods Neuropathic pain was induced in Sprague-Dawley rats. Surface electrodes for MCS were implanted in the rats. Tactile allodynia was measured by behavioral testing to determine the effect of MCS. For the pathway study, immunohistochemistry was performed to investigate changes in c-fos and serotonin expression; ...
It is possible to comprehend speech and discriminate languages by viewing a speakers articulatory movements. Transcranial magnetic stimulation studies have shown that viewing speech enhances excitability in the articulatory motor cortex. Here, we investigated the specificity of this enhanced motor excitability in native and non-native speakers of English. Both groups were able to discriminate between speech movements related to a known (i.e., English) and unknown (i.e., Hebrew) language. The motor excitability was higher during observation of a known language than an unknown language or non-speech mouth movements, suggesting that motor resonance is enhanced specifically during observation of mouth movements that convey linguistic information. Surprisingly, however, the excitability was equally high during observation of a static face. Moreover, the motor excitability did not differ between native and non-native speakers. These findings suggest that the articulatory motor cortex processes several kinds
It was not before the development of the figure of eight coil, which induces a more focal electrical field at the junction of the loops than the standard flat circular coil, that made somatotopic mapping of the praecentral gyrus without opening of the skull in awake patients possible.16 The correlation of focused TMS with MR imaging, functional MR imaging, and direct electrical motor cortex stimulation showed, that focused TMS reliably permits the detection of the motor cortex gyral sites of distinct muscles of the arm and leg.17 The stimulation site that allows to elicit muscle action potentials with peak amplitudes indicates the representation of the tested muscle in the primary motor cortex with an inaccuracy of only 0.5 cm.18,19 The threshold for a muscle response is lowest if the stimulation site directly overlies the cortical representation.12,13. MEP after TMS are largely suppressed by most anaesthetics,14,20-22 which might explain that the technique of TMS seldomly has been transferred ...
To test an idea that neurons in the motor cortex encodes a future state of the arm, we constructed a plausible model using arm state-related variables to explain neuronal activity, and applied a multiple linear regression analysis. We found that the model fit was fairly good with a mean determination coefficient of 0.57 for analyzed 231 neurons and that neuronal activity preceded the actual movement of the arm with 66 ms on average. Presuming that the brain follows optimal feed back control theory, these findings suggest that the motor cortex may contain a forward model of the arm.

Department of Neurobiology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, PA, USA. Research Service, Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA, USA. [paraphrase]. Corticomotoneuronal (CM) cells in the primary motor cortex (M1) have monosynaptic connections with motoneurons. They are one of the few sources of descending commands that directly influence motor output. We examined the contribution of CM cells to the generation of activity in their target muscles. The preferred direction of many CM cells differed from that of their target muscles. Some CM cells were selectively active when a muscle was used as an agonist. Others were selectively ...

A majority of decoding methods, such as population vector algorithms (PVA), optimal linear estimators (OLE), and neural networks (NN), are effective in predicting movement kinematics, including movement direction, speed and trajectory but usually require a large number of neurons to achieve desirable performance. This study proposed a novel decoding algorithm even with signals obtained from a smaller numbers of neurons. We adopted ...
The dysfunction of cholinergic neurons is a typical hallmark in Alzheimers disease (AD). Previous findings demonstrated that high density of cholinergic receptors is found in the thalamus and the cerebellum compared with the cerebral cortex and the hippocampus. We aimed at investigating whether activation of the cerebello-thalamo-cortical pathway by means of cerebellar theta burst stimulation (TBS) could modulate central cholinergic functions evaluated in vivo by using the neurophysiological determination of Short-Latency Afferent Inhibition (SLAI). We tested the SLAI circuit before and after administration of cerebellar continuous TBS (cTBS) in 12 AD patients and in 12 healthy age-matched control subjects (HS). We also investigated potential changes of intracortical circuits of the contralateral primary motor cortex (M1) by assessing short intracortical inhibition (SICI) and intracortical facilitation (ICF). SLAI was decreased in AD patients compared to HS. Cerebellar cTBS partially restored ...
We determined the origin of corticospinal neurons in the frontal lobe. These neurons were labeled by retrograde transport of tracers after injections into either the dorsolateral funiculus at the second cervical segment or the gray matter of the spinal cord throughout the cervical enlargement. Using retrograde transport of tracer from the arm area of the primary motor cortex, we defined the arm representation in each premotor area in another set of animals. We found that corticospinal projections to cervical segments of the spinal cord originate from the primary motor cortex and from the 6 premotor areas in the frontal lobe. These are the same premotor areas that project directly to the arm area of the primary motor cortex. The premotor areas are located in parts of cytoarchitectonic area 6 on the lateral surface and medial wall of the hemisphere, as well as in subfields of areas 23 and 24 in the cingulate sulcus. The total number of corticospinal neurons in the arm representations of the ...
Background and Purpose-Aside from the primary motor cortex, the corticospinal tract (CST) also receives fibers from dorsal and ventral premotor cortices and supplementary motor area, all of which might potentially contribute to motor function after stroke. We sought to quantify the microstructural integrity of CST originating from the hand representations in these 4 motor cortices separately and examined how these values related to hand motor impairment.. ...
article{e2cbad86-6bda-4ec2-8a69-1ef840be27b9, abstract = {,p,Evidence for experience-dependent structural brain change in adult humans is accumulating. However, its time course is not well understood, as intervention studies typically consist of only 2 imaging sessions (before vs. after training).We acquired up to 18 structural magnetic resonance images over a 7-week period while 15 right-handed participants practiced left-hand writing and drawing. After 4 weeks, we observed increases in gray matter of both left and right primary motor cortices relative to a control group; 3 weeks later, these differences were no longer reliable. Time-series analyses revealed that gray matter in the primary motor cortices expanded during the first 4weeks and then partially renormalized, in particular in the right hemisphere, despite continued practice and increasing task proficiency. Similar patterns of expansion followed by partial renormalization are also found in synaptogenesis, cortical map plasticity, and ...
Stroke is the third leading cause of death and survivors suffer motor impairments. The rodent sensorimotor system is similar to the humans, making rodents a good model to study the effects of stroke. Transgenic technology makes the mouse a desirable stroke model, however, there are few behavioural tests to assess behavioural outcome. This thesis evaluates mice subjected to permanent or temporary occlusion focal motor cortex strokes in a skilled reaching task. The first experiment documents changes in skilled movements in mice with a permanent occlusion focal motor cortex stroke. The second experiment is identical but uses a temporary occlusion focal motor cortex stroke. The third experiment compares the two strokes. The results indicate permanent occlusion mice suffer great impairments, and a larger injury, than temporarily occluded animals. The mice with the largest insults were most impaired. Mice make an excellent behavioural and genetic model for studying motor system stroke ...

Stroke is the leading cause of long-lasting disability in the United States and disproportionately affects adults in later life. Age-related decreases in dexterity and neural plasticity may contribute to the poorer prognosis of older stroke survivors, even following rehabilitative physical therapy. The goal of these dissertation studies is to determine how the cortical plasticity underlying motor skill learning, both before and after brain injury, changes in the aged brain. The general hypothesis of these studies is that age-related changes in motor performance and the limited ability to regain function following brain injury are associated with dysfunctional plasticity of the forelimb representation in the motor cortex. This hypothesis was tested in intact C57BL/6 mice by training them on a skilled reaching task and deriving intracortical microstimulation evoked motor cortical representations of the forelimb to determine training-induced changes in the function of the motor cortex. After ...
Unilateral movements are mainly controlled by the contralateral hemisphere, even though the primary motor cortex ipsilateral (M1ipsi) to the moving body side can undergo task-related changes of activity as well. Here we used transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to investigate whether representations of the wrist flexor (FCR) and extensor (ECR) in M1ipsi would be modulated when unilateral rhythmical wrist movements were executed in isolation or in the context of a simple or difficult hand-foot coordination pattern, and whether this modulation would differ for the left versus right hemisphere. We found that M1ipsi facilitation of the resting ECR and FCR mirrored the activation of the moving wrist such that facilitation was higher when the homologous muscle was activated during the cyclical movement. We showed that this ipsilateral facilitation increased significantly when the wrist movements were performed in the context of demanding hand-foot coordination tasks whereas foot movements alone influenced
A time-consuming preparatory stage is hypothesized to precede voluntary movement. A putative neural substrate of motor preparation occurs when a delay separates instruction and execution cues. When readiness is sustained during the delay, sustained neural activity is observed in motor and premotor areas. Yet whether delay-period activity reflects an essential preparatory stage is controversial. In particular, it has remained ambiguous whether delay-period-like activity appears before non-delayed movements. To overcome that ambiguity, we leveraged a recently developed analysis method that parses population responses into putatively preparatory and movement-related components. We examined cortical responses when reaches were initiated after an imposed delay, at a self-chosen time, or reactively with low latency and no delay. Putatively preparatory events were conserved across all contexts. Our findings support the hypothesis that an appropriate preparatory state is consistently achieved before ...

Tests at the University of Washington have shown its possible to reroute brain signals to move paralysed limbs. The results could eventually lead to treatment for spinal injury victims. The study works on the idea that, although spinal injuries ... damage the connections which carry nerve signals, victims usually retain both the muscles in the affected limb and the use of the motor cortex, the part of the brain which controls movement. Unlike some parts of the brain, which work on a use it or lose it basis, studies have shown people can retain full control over the motor cortex even after ... (view more) ...
In this paper we outline a grasp planning system designed to augment the cortical control of a prosthetic arm and hand. A key aspect of this system it the ability to combine online user input and autonomous planning to enable the execution of stable grasping tasks. While user input can ultimately be of any modality, the system is being designed to adapt to partial or noisy information obtained from grasp-related activity in the primate motor cortex. First, principal component analysis is applied to the observed kinematics of physiologic grasping to reduce the dimensionality of hand posture space and simplify the planning task for on-line use. The planner then accepts control input in this reduced-dimensionality space, and uses it as a seed for a hand posture optimization algorithm based on simulated annealing. We present two applications of this algorithm, using data collected from both primate and human subjects during grasping, to demonstrate its ability to synthesize stable grasps using partial

In addition to this temporal difference, movement-type information in the various neurophysiological signals also differed in spatial distribution down the anterior bank of the central sulcus. For LFP amplitude (Fig. 8A) and 1-4 Hz power (Fig. 8B), decoding accuracy curves for the shallow and deep groups rose and fell quite close together, although short epochs of separation were observed in some instances. Moreover, decoding accuracies obtained using either the shallow or the deep group attained values almost as high as those obtained using all available recordings. Movement-type information contained in LFP amplitude and in 1-4 Hz power thus was distributed quite similarly in both shallow and deep locations in the anterior bank of the central sulcus.. In contrast, decoding accuracies obtained with either 100-170 Hz LFP power (Fig. 8C) or spike recordings (Fig. 8D) rapidly became higher for the shallow than the deep groups and remained higher throughout the movement period. In monkey X, ...

For treatment with MSR, there seems to be a significant difference regarding the recovery of motor deficits caused by central metastases as compared with SRT/SRS. However, this recovery may also depend on other factors, such as the exact neuroanatomical localization of the metastases. From the standpoint of neurosurgery, it certainly impacts recovery if a metastasis is located either directly in the precentral gyrus or only adjacent to it. In our study, a localization of the metastasis adjacent to the precentral gyrus revealed only a statistical trend toward better improvement of the motor deficit in the multivariate analysis, but not in the univariate analysis.. The electrophysiologically controlled, intra-operative identification of the pyramidal tract is standard practice and was carried out consistently in our study. The pre-operative identification of the pyramidal tract by navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) [24], is increasingly utilized over the last 5 years, which implies ...

Cortical neurons exhibit highly irregular inter-spike intervals (ISIs) [1]. Differences in irregularity could be in part due to imbalances of excitatory and inhibitory inputs to the neurons, which determines the statistics of the net input [2]. There is experimental evidence that the intrinsic irregularity of neurons in the awake monkey is constant [3]. However, changes in irregularity have also been reported [4, 5] in different cortical areas and different behavioral tasks. The classical measure of spike time irregularity is the coefficient of variation (CV), a global measure defined as the dispersion of the ISIs. However, the CV largely overestimates the irregularity in the case of pronounced changes in firing rate. This led several researchers to propose alternative measures of irregularity that are local in time and therefore relatively independent of rate changes. To our knowledge, these measures have never been compared to each other. Here we compare four such measures: the local ...
When carrying out bodily movements, motor cortex neurons fire before and during motion in a sequence corresponding to the phases of motor preparation, initiation and execution. The dynamics of the complex neural microcircuitry underlying these phases, however, is poorly understood, due to the technical difficulty involved in directly measuring neuron activity in a moving animal.. To overcome this difficulty, the researchers applied new techniques enabling them to record the firing activity and accurately determine the location and identity of individual neurons in the motor cortex of moving rats. Analyzing location and timing data, they were able to identify a key difference between neuron types: whereas excitatory pyramidal cells in all cortical layers fired during every phase of movement, fast-spiking (FS) interneurons, the most prevalent type of inhibitory neurons, fired only during motor execution.. These results suggest that FS interneurons, rather than functioning as a "gate" as typically ...

Using this technology, monkeys in the Schwartz lab are able to move a robotic arm to feed themselves marshmallows and chunks of fruit while their own arms are restrained. Computer software interprets signals picked up by probes the width of a human hair. The probes are inserted into neuronal pathways in the monkeys motor cortex, a brain region where voluntary movement originates as electrical impulses. The neurons collective activity is then evaluated using software programmed with a mathematic algorithm and then sent to the arm, which carries out the actions the monkey intended to perform with its own limb. Movements are fluid and natural, and evidence shows that the monkeys come to regard the robotic device as part of their own bodies ...

Tomasino B, Weiss PH, Fink GR.. It has been suggested that the processing of action-related words involves activation of the motor circuitry. Using fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging), the current study further explored the interaction between action and language by investigating whether the linguistic context, in which an action word occurs, modulates motor circuitry activity related to the processing of action words. To this end, we examined whether the presentation of hand action-related verbs as positive or negative imperatives, for example, "Do grasp" or "Dont write," modulates neural activity in the hand area of primary motor cortex (M1) or premotor cortex (Pm). Subjects (n = 19) were asked to read silently the imperative phrases, in which both meaningful action verbs and meaningless pseudo-verbs were presented, and to decide whether they made sense (lexical decision task). At the behavioral level, response times in the lexical decision task were significantly longer for ...

The amount of evidence that is required seems to be modulated by cortical regions selleck chemicals such as presupplementary motor area (pre-SMA) and anterior cingulate cortex (ACC, e.g. 21•, 22, 23, 24• and 25). Many studies report that individual differences in pre-SMA BOLD responses correlate with individual differences in boundary setting of diffusion models (e.g. 21• and 22). Also, trial-by-trial fluctuations in pre-SMA BOLD correlate with trial-by-trial estimates of boundary settings under speed-stress. [24•]. This means that if there is a need to respond quickly, participants ability to adjust the amount of evidence required for a response is reflected in the BOLD response in the pre-SMA. The ACC, an area that is in close spatial proximity to the pre-SMA, has also been associated with the amount of evidence. Van Maanen and colleagues [24•] found that trial-to-trial fluctuations in BOLD response correlated with boundary settings in an accumulator model,. but only when the task ...
We developed a computational model based primarily on a unified set of brain activity mapping studies of mouse M1.
