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