Patrizio Paoletti Foundation at the International Conference on Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases and related neurological disorders (AD/PD 2022)

Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are a very difficult and as yet unsolved challenge for researchers today. Research has so far shown that an effective training to combat cognitive decline is that which combines mental and physical effort, creating a synergistic effect.


The Research Institute for Neuroscience, Education and Didactics (RINED) of the Patrizio Paoletti Foundation together with Sapienza University is conducting research into the Quadrato Motor Training technique in neurodegenerative patients. The preliminary results of this research will be presented by Tal Dotan Ben-Soussan, director of RINED, at the International AD/PD 2022 Conference, which will be held in Barcelona and online from 15 to 20 March, with a talk entitled: “Quadrato Motor Training as a possible tool for sensory-motor cognitive training in neurodegenerative states“.


In particular, this talk will show how, after one month of daily QMT training, there is an improvement in healthy electrophysiological “markers” in patients with neurodegenerative diseases, demonstrating the usefulness of QMT as a tool to slow cognitive decline in these disorders.
