Doctoral Research Seminar on "EEG source imaging of brain dynamics during walking"  by Dr. Johanna Wagner, University of California San Diego

Abstract:
Methodological difficulties have long prevented researchers from studying the direct neural dynamics supporting gait in humans. Recent signal processing advances, however, allow study of source-resolved electroencephalography (EEG) dynamics during walking and other actions, an approach termed Mobile Brain/Body Imaging. Using these methods I will show how neural oscillations support steady-state walking and gait adaptation behavior in humans. I will also demonstrate that single-trial EEG dynamic measures can predict the speed of subsequent gait adaptation, establishing a direct relationship between EEG dynamics in single trials and gait dynamics. I will discuss possibilities to use these EEG features for interventions and treatments in populations with gait motor disorders such as Parkinson’s.
