Can restorative brain-computer interfaces improve hand motor functions after a stroke?

This study is investigating whether neurofeedback training can improve hand movement after stroke.

People who have had a stroke at least 6 months ago, are able to understand auditory commands presented in English, and are independently mobile are invited to take part.

Participation involves attending 20 sessions at the University of Adelaide. The sessions start with a two-hour screening session, followed by 18 one-hour training sessions (3 days per week, within 6 weeks), and will be concluded by another two-hour screening session.

During neurofeedback training sessions, participants imagine they extend their fingers and receive actual finger extension via a bionic hand involved with their fingers.
