|Outline of Final Research Achievements
In the rehabilitation to motor impairment after brain damage, it is necessary not only to improve the paretic limb in function but also to reconstruct the neural basis recognizing a paretic limb as an own body part and to send an appropriate motor command according to the environment to the paretic limb.
Therefore, using spatial attention directed to the body ("body-specific attention") as an evaluation index, visualizing the body representation in the brain by describing the distribution of the bodily attention around the body. Furthermore, aiming to elucidate the relationship between the bodily attention and motor function, and further bodily consciousness, we conducted some clinical experiments utilizing the body ownership of paretic limb for establishment the new rehabilitation method.
