Exercise/memory research for Parkinson's
Date:12/12/2011

he VA and University of Maryland School of Medicine.

"This study shows the commitment of our University of Maryland faculty to exploring new approaches, such as exercise and memory training, to help patients with illnesses such as Parkinson's disease around the world," says E. Albert Reece, M.D., Ph.D., M.B.A, vice president for medical affairs, University of Maryland, and dean, University of Maryland School of Medicine.

The Maryland researchers expanded the exercise studies to Parkinson's patients after first finding success with treadmill training for stroke patients. This research, also conducted at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and the VA Maryland Health Care System, found that regular exercise on a treadmill can improve stroke patients' walking ability even years after they've had a stroke.

Co-investigator Richard Macko, M.D., says, "With stroke patients, we have seen that the consistent, repetitive motion of walking may help the brain to develop new connections to compensate for the damaged ones. This new Parkinson's study takes the concept of exercise training for neurology patients in a new direction. We will be interested to see if this consistent training will produce benefits to memory." Dr. Macko is director of the Maryland Exercise and Robotics Center of Excellence at the VA Maryland Health Care System and professor of neurology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
