The objective of this study to investigate, if learning and recall of a sequence of body movements (steps that realize a pattern on the ground) can be improved by self-produced music (having particular melodic-structures in relation to the pattern), compared to the same sound (a single tone) for each pattern in persons with multiple sclerosis compared to age and gender matched controls
learning and recall of a sequence of body movements

This study evaluates different optimized MRI sequences for the detection of brain lesions in patients with multiple sclerosis in comparison with the recommended FLAIR sequence
The purpose of this study is to look at multiple sclerosis patients process of awareness, learning, and judging status over a 3 year time period.
Cognitive impairment affects up to 65% of multiple sclerosis (MS) subjects, especially memory function. Rothschild Foundation has developped the Paris Visual Learning and memory Test (PVL...
Gait and mobility are among the functions frequently affected in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and have a negative impact on quality of life. Strength losses in lower limb muscles, ataxia, senso...
Aversive sensory phenomena such as premonitory urges play a central role in the behavioral treatment model of tics. Extinction learning and extinction recall are learning processes implica...
Hippocampal interactions with the motor system are often assumed to reflect the role of memory in motor learning. Here, we examine hippocampal connectivity with sensorimotor cortex during two tasks re...
People with Multiple sclerosis (MS) have been found to impair strength and endurance of core muscles compared with healthy people. Whole body vibration (WBV) is a relatively new method of neuromuscula...
Cognitive impairment is a common symptom in all stages of multiple sclerosis (MS), yet it is underreported and not routinely evaluated. The Brief International Cognitive Assessment for Multiple Sclero...
Perturbation training, built upon motor adaptation and learning, has been increasingly used as a fall prevention paradigm in older adults. This training paradigm involves repeated externally-induced p...
From memorizing a musical tune to navigating a well known route, many of our underlying behaviors have a strong temporal component. While the mechanisms behind the sequential nature of the underlying ...
A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)
A non-glycosylated form of interferon beta-1 that has a serine at position 17. It is used in the treatment of both RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS and CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
An autoimmune disorder mainly affecting young adults and characterized by destruction of myelin in the central nervous system. Pathologic findings include multiple sharply demarcated areas of demyelination throughout the white matter of the central nervous system. Clinical manifestations include visual loss, extra-ocular movement disorders, paresthesias, loss of sensation, weakness, dysarthria, spasticity, ataxia, and bladder dysfunction. The usual pattern is one of recurrent attacks followed by partial recovery (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, RELAPSING-REMITTING), but acute fulminating and chronic progressive forms (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE) also occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p903)
Process in which individuals take the initiative, in diagnosing their learning needs, formulating learning goals, identifying resources for learning, choosing and implementing learning strategies and evaluating learning outcomes (Knowles, 1975)
A variant of epilepsy characterized by continuous focal jerking of a body part over a period of hours, days, or even years without spreading to other body regions. Contractions may be aggravated by movement and are reduced, but not abolished during sleep. ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY demonstrates epileptiform (spike and wave) discharges over the hemisphere opposite to the affected limb in most instances. The repetitive movements may originate from the CEREBRAL CORTEX or from subcortical structures (e.g., BRAIN STEM; BASAL GANGLIA). This condition is associated with Russian Spring and Summer encephalitis (see ENCEPHALITIS, TICK BORNE); Rasmussen syndrome (see ENCEPHALITIS); MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS; DIABETES MELLITUS; BRAIN NEOPLASMS; and CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS. (From Brain, 1996 April;119(pt2):393-407; Epilepsia 1993;34;Suppl 1:S29-S36; and Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p319)
Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
