Researchers have developed a new, minimally invasive brain stimulation technique that can induce a range of bodily movements. The technique, magneto-thermal stimulation, can be used to target highly specific brain regions and could help researchers to advance brain mapping studies.
Researchers improve the ability to walk in patients with multiple sclerosis and stroke survivors with the help of functional electrical stimulation.
A new small-scale study reveals transcranial direct current stimulation improved gait and increased the benefits of aerobic exercise in Parkinson's patients.
Researchers identify neuronal circuits in the spinal cord of mice which control the ability to produce alternating movements of the legs during walking.
Researchers report the angiogenesis in the brain could be a cause of some of the intractable walking and balance difficulties associated with Parkinson's disease.
Researchers uncover a vital mechanism which underlies the sensory feedback which helps guide balance and limb movement.
Handgrip strength correlates with cognitive function, attention, and psychomotor function in older men. No association was found between muscle mass and cognitive function.
A new in-home device that monitors movement and gait speed can evaluate Parkinson's disease severity, progression, and a patient's response to medication.
A common game system camera could be used as an effective means of evaluating gait and walking problems in people with multiple sclerosis.
