Neurodegenerative Disease (e.g. MS, Parkinson's disease)
Technology (e.g. robotics, assistive technology, mHealth)
In neurodegenerative disorders, impairments in motor and cognitive functions are common. Performing concurrent cognitive and motor tasks leads to increased cognitive-motor interference which is associated with increased risk of falls and driving unsafety. Virtual reality is a new rehabilitation tool offers opportunities to improve cognitive and motor functions in people with neurodegenerative conditions. In this symposium, we will discuss the state-of-the-art technology to create virtual reality environments in order to induce and reduce cognitive-motor interference. In addition, we will discuss the brain-behavior interactions during cognitive-motor interference by using the evidence from commonly used neurophysiological tools in people with neurodegenerative conditions.
