Action observation activates brain areas involved in performing the same action and has been shown to increase motor learning, with potential implications for neurorehabilitation. Recent work indicates that the effects of action observation on movement can be increased by motor imagery or by directing attention to observed actions. In voluntary imitation,(More)
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), recommends the World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule (WHODAS) 2.0 for routine clinical use. We tested the utility of the 12-item WHODAS 2.0 in prodromal Huntington disease. Using data from 726 participants and 630 companions over a 3-year follow-up, linear(More)
Investigating spatial cognition in individuals with acquired language impairments can inform our understanding of how components of language are involved in spatial representation. Using the reorientation paradigm of Hermer-Vazquez, Spelke, and Katsnelson (1999), we examined spatial cue integration (landmark-geometry conjunctions) in individuals with severe(More)
Background. Conductive Education for stroke survivors has shown promise but randomised evidence is unavailable. This study assessed the feasibility of a definitive randomised controlled trial to evaluate efficacy. Methods. Adult stroke survivors were recruited through local community notices. Those completing the baseline assessment were randomised using an(More)
Background. Action observation and motor imagery activate neural structures involved in action execution, thereby facilitating movement and learning. Although some benefits of action observation and motor imagery have been reported in Parkinson's disease (PD), methods have been based on stroke rehabilitation and may be less suitable for PD. Moreover,(More)
Netzwerksysteme wie die „Integrierte Versorgung“ sind angetreten, eine qualitative und ökonomische Verbesserung bisheriger Versorgungsstrukturen im deutschen Gesundheitssystem zu erreichen. Im klinischen Alltag stehen nicht selten praktische Probleme des Datenaustauschs zwischen den Versorgungspartnern einer Integrierten Versorgung einer erfolgreichen,(More)
Verbal interference in visuospatial information processing has been interpreted as showing either that verbal coding supplements visuospatial representation (Meilinger, Knauff, & Bulthoff, 2008; Walker & Cuthbert, 1998), or that language mechanisms are necessary for integrating featural and spatial information (Hermer-Vazquez, Spelke, & Katsnelson, 1999).(More)
Observation of movement activates the observer's own motor system, influencing the performance of actions and facilitating social interaction. This motor resonance is demonstrated behaviourally through visuomotor priming, whereby response latencies are influenced by the compatibility between an intended action and an observed (task-irrelevant) action. The(More)
