Parkinson's Disease (PD) is characterized by motor and cognitive decay, coupled to an alteration of brain oscillatory patterns. In this study a novel neuro-rehabilitation tool, based on the application of motor imagery into a Brain Computer Interface system, is presented with some preliminary data. Three patients were evaluated (with motor, neuropsychological and EEG testing) before and after a neuro-rehabilitation protocol made by 15 experimental sessions. Patients showed a decrease of freezing of gait severity, an improvement in alpha and beta EEG bands power, and a better performance on some attention and executive tasks.

Abstract

Parkinson's Disease (PD) is characterized by motor and cognitive decay, coupled to an alteration of brain oscillatory patterns. In this study a novel neuro-rehabilitation tool, based on the application of motor imagery into a Brain Computer Interface system, is presented with some preliminary data. Three patients were evaluated (with motor, neuropsychological and EEG testing) before and after a neuro-rehabilitation protocol made by 15 experimental sessions. Patients showed a decrease of freezing of gait severity, an improvement in alpha and beta EEG bands power, and a better performance on some attention and executive tasks.
