Neurofeedback for Stroke Rehabilitation
Neurofeedback for stroke rehabilitation
Patterns of brain activity change after stroke. Neurofeedback aims to address impairment in brain activation through brain activation training. Neurofeedback involves displaying patterns of brain activity to a stroke survivor, in real time, while a task is being performed with the affected hand. By promoting beneficial brain activity patterns, this approach aims to extend or enhance the benefits of therapy.
