Abstract. In this study, we examined the effect of neurofeedback on EEG changes due to immobilization of the dominant hand. Desynchronization of the sensorimotor rhythms during motor imagery was used as a tool to investigate brain activity. The study is based on 8 healthy subjects who underwent immobilization of the dominant hand for 24 hours. ...

Abstract. Whether or not brain activation during motor imagery (MI), the mental rehearsal of movement, is modulated by experience (i.e. skilled performance, achieved through long-term practice) remains unclear. Specifically, MI is generally associated with diffuse activation patterns that closely resemble novice physical performance, which may be attributable to a lack of experience with the task being imagined vs. being a distinguishing feature of MI. We sought to examine ...
