DOI : 10.13066/kspm.2012.7.1.011
Purpose : This study is intended to examine the repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on cognitive function in the focal ischemic stroke rat model. Methods : This study selected 30 Sprague-Dawley rats of 8 weeks. The groups were divided into two groups and assigned 15 rats to each group. Control group: Non-treatment after injured by focal ischemic stroke; Experimental group: application of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation(0.1 Tesla, 25 Hz, 20 min/time, 2 times/day, 5 days/2 week) after injured by focal ischemic stroke. To assess the effect of rTMS, the passive avoidance test, spatial learning and memory ability test were analyzed at the pre, 1 day,
day and immunohistochemistric response of BDNF were analyzed in the hippocampal dentate gyrus at
day. Results : In passive avoidance test, the outcome of experimental group was different significantly than the control group at the
day. In spatial learning and memory ability test, the outcome of experimental group was different significantly than the control group at the
day. In immunohistochemistric response of BDNF in the hippocampal dentate gyrus, experimental groups was more increased than control group. Conclusion : These result suggest that improved cognitive function by repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation after focal ischemic stroke is associated with dynamically altered expression of BDNF in hippocampal dentate gyrus and that is related with synaptic plasticity.

Purpose : The purpose of this study was to examine the gait parameter and plantar foot pressure of adults with Down syndrome(DS) during walking in order to provide data for developing evidence-based deficit or common rehabilitation strategies. Method : 15 participants with DS(12 men, 3 women; age
) and 15 healthy subjects(12 men, 3 women; age
) were matched age. They walked at self selected speeds on a GAITRite system and RS-scan system, and had the following measurements done: cadence, stride length, step width, foot angle, percent stance, percent double support, and plantar foot pressure in 10 areas of the foot. Results : In comparison of gait parameter(cadence, stride length, step width, foot angle, percent stance, and percent double support) between adults with DS and healthy subjects, there was significant differences(p<.05). Regarding plantar foot pressure during gait with or without DS, there were statisically significant differences in the area of Toes 1-5, Metatasal 1-4, Midfoot, and Heel(Medial and lateral)(p<.05). Conclusion : Our data show that DS walk with a less physiolosical gait pattern and plantar foot pressure than healthy subjects. Based on our results, DS patients need targeted rehabilitation and exercise strategies.

Purpose : The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of trunk exercises on the balancing ability of elderly Hansen's disease patients with lower extremity dysfunction. Method : A total of 24 elderly Hansen's disease patients were divided into two groups: 10 without lower extremity dysfunction and 14 with lower extremity dysfunction. The groups exercised for 60 minutes, two days a week, for a total 12 weeks; balancing ability was measured with the one leg standing test, tandem walking test, and timed up-and-go test. The patients were tested and their results were compared both before and after the completion of their exercise programs. Lower extremity dysfunction was assessed according to the following criteria: unilateral foot-drop, toe-loss, and below-knee amputation. Results : After the exercises, participants in both groups showed a positive, statistically significant difference in balance, compared with before the exercises (the one leg standing test, tandem walking test, and timed up-and-go test; p<.05). For comparison purposes, the group with dysfunction and the group without dysfunction were tested before and after the completion of their exercises. Before the exercises, there was a statistically significant difference in the one leg standing test, tandem walking test, and timed up-and-go test (p<.05). However, after the exercises, there was no significant difference in the one leg standing test, tandem walking test, and timed up-and-go test (p>.05). Conclusion : Ultimately, balancing ability was improved in both of the groups after trunk exercises were performed. Although balancing ability was improved, elements of lower extremity dysfunction remained, such as unilateral foot-drop, toe-loss, and below-knee amputation.
