Dall'Orso S, Steinweg J, Allievi AG, Edwards AD, Burdet E, Arichi Tet al., 2018, Somatotopic Mapping of the Developing Sensorimotor Cortex in the Preterm Human Brain., Cereb Cortex, Vol: 28, Pages: 2507-2515

In the mature mammalian brain, the primary somatosensory and motor cortices are known to be spatially organized such that neural activity relating to specific body parts can be somatopically mapped onto an anatomical "homunculus". This organization creates an internal body representation which is fundamental for precise motor control, spatial awareness and social interaction. Although it is unknown when this organization develops in humans, animal studies suggest that it may emerge even before the time of normal birth. We therefore characterized the somatotopic organization of the primary sensorimotor cortices using functional MRI and a set of custom-made robotic tools in 35 healthy preterm infants aged from 31 + 6 to 36 + 3 weeks postmenstrual age. Functional responses induced by somatosensory stimulation of the wrists, ankles, and mouth had a distinct spatial organization as seen in the characteristic mature homunculus map. In comparison to the ankle, activation related to wrist stimulation was significantly larger and more commonly involved additional areas including the supplementary motor area and ipsilateral sensorimotor cortex. These results are in keeping with early intrinsic determination of a somatotopic map within the primary sensorimotor cortices. This may explain why acquired brain injury in this region during the preterm period cannot be compensated for by cortical reorganization and therefore can lead to long-lasting motor and sensory impairment.

Tactile apparent motion can display directional information in an intuitive way. It can for example be used to give directions to visually impaired individuals, or for waypoint navigation while cycling on busy streets, when vision or audition should not be loaded further. However, although humans can detect very short tactile patterns, discriminating between similar motion speeds has been shown to be difficult. Here we develop and investigate a method where the speed of tactile apparent motion around the user's wrist is coupled with vibration magnitude. This redundant coupling is used to produce tactile patterns from slow&weak to fast&strong. We compared the just noticeable difference (JND) of the coupled and the individual variables. The results show that the perception of the coupled variable can be characterised by JND smaller than JNDs of the individual variables. This allowed us to create short tactile pattens (tactons) for display of direction and speed, which can be distinguished significantly better than tactons based on motion alone. Additionally, most subjects were also able to identify the coupled-variable tactons better than the magnitude-based tactons.

Ong HT, Tong LZ, Tan JX, Lin J, Burdet E, Teo CL, Ge SSet al., 2016, Pediatric rehabilitation of upper limb function using novel robotic device reachMAN2, Pages: 1-7

Studies of robotic therapy for adults with physical disabilities due to stroke have been an active field of research for the last two decades and the results suggest that stroke patients can benefit from this kind of therapy. Due to the success of robot-assisted rehabilitation in adults, it is reasonable to believe that this approach may be well suited to the needs of children with physical disabilities. This paper presents the results of a preliminary study of three children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy, using the reachMAN2, a novel robotic device for the pediatric rehabilitation of upper limb function. The device has two degrees-of-freedom to train pinching, forearm supination/pronation and wrist flexion/ extension movements. An interactive computer game was developed to increase subjects' participation and engagement during the robotic rehabilitation. Pinching, with the index finger and thumb, forearm supination/pronation as well as wrist flexion/extension were trained two or three times a week for 15 minutes each. There was a total of 10 training sessions in four weeks. The results showed significant improvement in movement precision, range of motion as well as motor skill measurements using the Bruininks- Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, Second Edition (BOT-2).
