Title : Effect of motor learning augmented cues on cognitive functions in Parkinson


Background/Aims: Parkinsonism characterized by deficits in cognitive functions that affect the motor control. The main aim was to assess the effect of motor learning feedback with augmented cues of motor learning on cognitive functions and motor performance in patients with Parkinsonism. Methods: A total of 30 patients from both sexes participated in this study. The patients were randomly divided equally into two equal groups: the study group received motor learning feedback with augmented cues of motor learning and the conventional treatment. The control group received conventional cognitive training. The patients assessed by the computer-based cognitive assessment device (RehaCom). Findings: The result of this study showed that there was a significant difference between the study and control groups (p=0.0001), which indicated that the study group showed a greater improvement than the control group.

Conclusions: the motor learning feedback with augmented cues of lead to significant improvement effect on both cognitive and motor functions in patients with Parkinsonism.

Key words: Cognition, Motor learning, Parkinsonism.

What will audience learn from your presentation?

  • The audience will be able to practice the motor learning in treatment of neurological disorders
  • The audience will get new advanced knowledge on how to apply the motor learning feedback in rehabilitation program in Parkinson patients
  • Motor learning therapy have a significant effect in improving cognitive and functional outcomes in neurological disorders
