Abstract：Stroke is a comprehensive disease of local dysfunction caused by sudden vascular disease in brain area, which is the first malignant neurological disease in the world. Exercise rehabilitation training plays an important role in the recovery of function after stroke. The key lies in the improvement of the plasticity of the injured nerve tissue in brain area through limb movement induction to achieve the improvement and recovery of motor function. However, traditional passive repeated training approaches cannot arouse patients’ participation and enthusiasm, which seriously affects the rehabilitation effect. In recent years, the model of motor neurofeedback rehabilitation training based on the motor imagery brain-machine interface (MI-BCI) can be driven by the endogenicity of patients′ subjective motor intention to produce plastic changes in the corresponding brain regions, and it can promote limb motor rehabilitation through brain functional recombination. This paper reviewed the application of different motor neurofeedback modes including proprioception and visual feedback in stroke rehabilitation training, discussed the existing challenges and solutions of the current MI-BCI neurofeedback rehabilitation training system, and provided opinions for the future development.
