Abstract

There is now ufficient evidence that using a rehabilitation protocol involving motor imagery (M-') practice (ormental practice ( 1P)) in conjunction with physical pracrice (PP) of goal-directed rehabilitation tasks leads to enhanced functional recovery of paralyzed limb among stroke sufferers. It is however difficult to ensure patient engagement during 1P in the absence of any on-line measure of the MP. Fortunately an EEG-based non-invasive brain-computer interface (BCI) technology is primarily based on the real-time detection of MI induced pattern to sensorimotor rhythmic (SMR) EEG activity while subjects perform MI tasks (e.g. left/right hand movement imagery). The reported work carried out a successful feasibility study of a BCI based rehabilitation paradigm that provides a neurofeedback of Ml tasks during an MP to help ensure patient engagement.
