The effect of experimental pain on motor training performance and sensorimotor integration
Sensorimotor integration (SMI) is the ability of the central nervous system (CNS) to integrate afferent (incoming) information from different body parts and formulate appropriate motor output to muscles. Effective sensorimotor ...
Motor training and cervical spine manipulation: effects on sensorimotor integration
Altered afferent input resulting from neck joint dysfunction has become a growing area of study. Cervical spine manipulation, specifically in individuals with subclinical neck pain (SNCP); induces neurological changes, ...
Cortical and cerebellar motor processing changes subsequent to motor training and cervical spine manipulation
Chronic neck pain, including subclinical neck pain (SCNP), is a significant problem that places a burden on the healthcare system. Chiropractic manipulation has shown not only to be effective in treating symptoms of neck ...
Measuring the effects of subclinical neck pain on sensorimotor integration using electroencephalography event related potentials and source localization
Subclinical neck pain (SCNP) is recurrent neck pain that has not yet been treated. This thesis investigated whether acute pain affects motor learning acquisition in SCNP vs. healthy individuals. 10 healthy and 10 SCNP ...
Effects of altered sensory input from the neck on cerebellar function, body schema and sensorimotor integration
Neck muscles have a high density of muscle spindle afferents and their input is critical for formulating the perception of head position relative to the body. Chronic alterations in afferent input from the neck may be ...
Assessing neurophysiological and behavioural outcomes of the proximal upper limb muscles in response to novel motor skill acquisition
A single session of motor training with the distal upper limb muscles leads to changes in brain and spinal cord processing. However, the neuroplastic response of the proximal upper limb muscles to novel motor training has ...
