Motor imagery ability and training in brain damaged patients.
Presented by Dr. Magdalena Ietswaart, University of Northumberland
Neuroimaging studies have shown a substantial overlap between those cortical areas involved in actual and imagined movements. The functional relevance of this, however, remains unclear. This seminar will include the results of a randomised controlled neuro-rehabilitation trial investigating whether motor imagery training can improve motor function in patients with a weakness following stroke. Motor imagery ability in relation to cortical damage and motor programming deficits will also be discussed.
This seminar will be preceeded by a lunch buffet from 12:30pm.
