A turbulent year, to be sure, but nothing has changed for our researchers. On the contrary, the first research results have already been obtained thanks to grants from the Charcot 2020 Fund.
One of the laureates, Prof. Peter Feys, is happy to present on our new vimeo channel the work made possible by our donors.
"This project studies how people with cognitive and motor impairments caused by MS can learn complex steps. People take these steps in a specific order and receive different instructions or feedback (eg noise or music). During the movements, with and without duplication, we will measure brain activity in the regions responsible for programming the movements by means of electrodes placed on the skull. The information provided by this research will help improve rehabilitation programs for people with cognitive disabilities.”
