Task-specificity in isolated focal dystonias is a powerful feature that may successfully be targeted with therapeutic brain–computer interfaces. While performing a symptomatic task, the patient actively modulates momentary brain activity (disorder signature) to match activity during an asymptomatic task (target signature), which is expected to translate into symptom reduction.
