- Identification of Early Markers of Neurodegeneration.
- Understanding the interplay between gait and Cognition.
- Exploring motor-cognitive reserve in health and disease.
- Research in the LEMON lab is performed in a clinical setting. Projects include both cross sectional and longitudinal assessments of patients and population at risk.
Projects in the lab include:
- Genetics in Parkinson’s disease, identifying disease phenotypes, disease trajectories and progression and early markers of disease in populations in risk.
- Assessing motor-cognitive reserve. Understanding the relation to neurodegeneration and factors of neuroprotection.
- Exploring motor and cognitive interaction in neurodegenerative disorders using fNIRS and EEG. Understating neural function during functional performance.
- Identifying sleep abnormalities using a new combined EEG+EMG system for home based assessment. Collaboration with Prof. Yael Hanin from the Nanotechnology department at TAU.
- Assessing neural activation during auditory and visual tests using EEG in Parkinson’s disease and Lewy Body Dementia (DLB)
Joint projects with other Faculty members in the Sagol School of Neuroscience:
- Assessing common pathways in neurodegenerative disease – in collaboration with Prof. Nir Giladi
- Motor cognitive interactions in ageing and neurodegeneration – in collaboration with Prof. Jeffrey Hausdorff.
- Exploring neural activation using fNIRS and EEG in Parkinson’s disease and Lewy Body Dementia- in collaboration with Dr. Tamara Shiner
