Group of people exercising

We have an opportunity for people with Parkinson’s to take part in some research looking at imagined movement.


Imagining and Visualising movements in Parkinson’s.Charlotte Growcott, a PhD student at the University of Manchester, is exploring how people with Parkinson’s define and understand motor imagery, which is when you imagine movements in real-time without actually physically moving.

The aim of the research is to gather a greater understanding of the definition of motor imagery and how it can be used to better the lives of people with Parkinson’s. 
 
Who do the researchers need?
250 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s who have access to a laptop or tablet.

What’s involved?
A 45 minute, online questionnaire. The team can offer you help in completing the questionnaire.

For people who identify as having later stage Parkinson’s, you may be invited to a one-to-one interview that will be conducted remotely.

For more information, please read the Participant Information Sheet.

If you have any further questions about the research or would like help with the questionnaire, contact Charlotte via email at Charlotte.growcott@manchester.ac.uk or phone 0161 275 7333 before 30 April 2022.Go to the online questionnaireThis opportunity is not managed by Parkinson’s UK.
