MRI scans could improve our understanding of dyspraxia
A new research team at The University of Nottingham is using MRI scanning to learn more about the role of the cerebellum in Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) – the motor skills disorder also known as Dyspraxia.
Dr Holmes said: “The tests can be done over two 90 minute sessions in the school holidays or evenings. The volunteers will also participate in a newly developed hand-eye coordination task to test reaction times and grasping techniques.”
Dr Holmes brought The Hand Lab team Nottingham from Reading last year. He said: “Our research looks at how we perceive our hand’s location, size, and shape, how this affects our movement and thought, and what role the brain plays in these processes.”
