  • xENi

    Das xENi Labor beschäftigt sich mit der neuronalen Kontrolle der Sensomotorik im menschlichen Gehirn. Unser Ziel ist es, die Mechanismen neuroplastischer Anpassungsvorgänge zu verstehen, z.B. im Rahmen von Lernvorgängen bei jungen Gesunden und im gesunden Alterungsprozess sowie nach fokalen Hirnläsionen wie einem akuten Schlaganfall.

    Unsere Hauptkompetenz liegt in der elektrophysiologischen und bildmorphologischen Darstellung physiologischer und pathologischer zerebraler Funktionen. Im Fokus unseres Interesses stehen mikro- und makrostrukturelle Analysen der Hirnanatomie und von Hirnnetzwerken, Analysen von funktionellen Hirnnetzwerken sowie die Modulation und Stimulation von Hirnnetzwerken durch innovative nicht-invasive Hirnstimulationsmethoden.

    Unsere Methodenkompetenz umfasst:

    • Strukturelles und funktionelles MRT
    • Multi-Kanal-EEG, MEG und EMG
    • neuronavigierte transkranielle Magnetstimulation (TMS)
    • transkranielle Gleich- und Wechselstromstimulation (tDCS / tACS)
    • kinematische Analysen
    • Verhaltensanalysen

Unser Ziel ist es, die Funktion des Gehirns bei Gesunden und im normalen Alterungsprozess besser zu verstehen, Veränderungsmöglichkeiten des Gehirns nach einem Schlaganfall zu erforschen und letztlich innovative Therapiemöglichkeiten für Betroffene zu entwickeln. Medikamentenstudien führen wir nicht durch.

    Für Ihre Unterstützung wären wir sehr dankbar. Die Teilnahme an Studien wird Ihnen finanziell vergütet. Bei Interesse wenden Sie sich bitte an uns unter Telefon: 0152-22871739 oder Email: schlaganfallstudie@uke.de .

Stroke recovery

  • XENI SFB
    SFB 936 - project C1

    This project is geared to understand dynamic changes of multi-site communication, especially of ‘small-world network’ properties of the sensorimotor system, in the course of hand motor recovery after stroke. In a longitudinal design, connectivity will be measured with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in 60 patients. It is the project’s goal to create a statistical model of stroke recovery which can predict functional outcome, e.g., providing odds ratios for good recovery of dexterity. Beyond this, a computational model of the neural network serves motor control will be designed to simulate prospectively the effects of focal brain lesions on neural activity and behavior.

  • The overall goal of this project is to understand adaptive changes of the cerebral motor network after stroke. In the first funding period, a central multimodal stroke database has been created and various network analyses have been implemented (DCM for fMRI/EEG, graph and game theory, machine learning, oscillator models). In the second funding period, different types of network characterization will be compared and related to clinical parameters. To move on towards causal relations between network dynamics and behavior, we will modulate networks with non-invasive brain stimulation, measure the effects, and apply modeling to predict them. With this thematic continuation and extension into modeling, modulation, and simulation, the project will move towards network-based, individualized outcome prediction and therapeutical applications.

    NETS study

    We aim to optimize the functional outcome after ischemic lesion affecting the upper extremity. Based on previous studies showing a beneficial effect of tDCS on hand motor function in chronic stroke patients we initiated a European multicentre, randomized controlled clinical trial (NETS). The double-blind interventional trial investigates the hypothesis that tDCS combined with functional training will enhance upper limb recovery in subacute stroke patients after their first-ever stroke. Eight centres are cooperating including centres in Northern and Southern Germany, as well as in Italy, Rome.

    Treffen der Kooperationspartner im März 2017

    Ziel dieses Projektes ist es, Erkenntnisse über Neuroplastizität und die Mechanismen des Wiedererlernens von Funktionen nach einem Schlaganfall aus dem Labor in die Praxis zu transferieren. In Kooperation mit den Rehabilitationskliniken RehaCentrum Hamburg, dem Klinikum Bad Bramstedt, dem MediClin Klinikum Soltau sowie der Helios Klinik Geesthacht findet zunächst eine Evaluation der aktuellen Praxis der Neurorehabilitation statt. In einem zweiten Schritt werden wir neurophysiologische und Imaging-basierte Biomarker für die Prognose des Rehabilitationsergebnisses mit Fokus auf der Handfunktion untersuchen. Im Weiteren soll der Einfluss evidenzbasierter Patienteninformation auf das Rehabilitationsergebnis analysiert werden. Auf Grundlage dieser Ergebnisse sollen neue therapeutische Ansätze wie nicht-invasive Hirnstimulation und Eigentraining zu Hause erforscht und Algorithmen für personalisierte Therapiepfade für Schlaganfallpatienten entwickelt werden.

    This project aimsat tranferring knowledge and expertise about neuroplasticity and recovery mechanisms after stroke from an experimental level into clinical practice. In a cooperation with the rehabilitation clinics RehaCentrum Hamburg, Klinikum Bad Bramstedt, Klinikum Soltau and Helios Klinik Geesthacht an evaluation of the current practice of rehabilitation of stroke patients in the post-acute phase is undertaken. As a second step we will investigate neurophysiological and imaging-based biomarkers for the prognosis of rehabilitation outcome with a focus on hand function. Furthermore, the influence of evidence-based patient information on the rehabilitation outcome will be studied. Based on these results new therapeutic approaches like non-invasive brain stimulation and home-based training will be investigated to develop algorithms of personalised therapy protocols for stroke patients.

    Scheme of TRR 169

    In this project, we examine the neural dynamics of crossmodal learning in healthy elderly individuals. We analyze neural signals associated with visuo-tactile integration and learning using EEG and MEG. Furthermore, we employ non-invasive brain stimulation to modulate related brain areas in attempt to enhance performance and aim to build computational models accounting for age-related differences. Our investigations will focus specifically on oscillatory neural activity and large-scale dynamic coupling between brain regions.

  • Motor learning in healthy aging
    Motor learning testing

    As age-related declines in motor performance and skill acquisition affect healthy older people to pursue normal daily activities, the goal of this project is to get a better understanding of procedural learning in the form of fine motor skills over an intensive training period. A group of very old (>65 years) and a control group of young participants perform a sequential finger tapping task. The training is accompanied with extensive transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) protocols to examine intracortical changes.

    In a second study arm, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is applied sham-controlled in healthy older participants. The aim of tDCS application is to alter membrane potential with the potential to achieve cortical changes after stimulation has ended. In an attempt to optimize motor learning older participants receive stimulation during the task.
