Project

Neuroimaging to investigate changes due to modified amputation

Groups

This study investigates the effect of preserving proprioceptive peripheral neuromuscular constructs (through AMI amputation) on central sensorimotor cortical reorganization. Through task-based functional MRI, heightened functional connectivity, preservation of sensorimotor function, and enhanced sensory capacities for improved neuroprosthetic controllability are observed in patients with AMI amputation as compared with their matched standard amputation controls.

This project is in collaboration with the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging.
