Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter discusses how to select groups of patients that could benefit from a therapeutic approach including motor imagery. It considers that motor imagery is impaired in patients with Parkinson's disease. It examines whether similar or distinct neural networks are recruited during motor imagery in patients with Parkinson's disease and healthy individuals. It evaluates the effectiveness of using motor imagery during motor rehabilitation, as well as the effect of surgical treatments on motor imagery in patients with Parkinson's disease.
