rol gait. They will also investigate whether freezing can be alleviated through repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of one of these regions, the posterior parietal cortex (PPC). rTMS is a non-invasive method for stimulating specific areas of the brain surface through the skull.
  • A team based in Sydney, Australia, will use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in a virtual environment to safely trigger freezing episodes while visualizing patients' brains. The researchers aim to more fully establish which regions of the brain are activated during freezing in order to open new doors to the development of treatments.
  • As with all MJFF awards, continued funding is dependent on researchers' achieving predetermined milestones. A full list of awardees is below. Grant abstracts and researchers' biosketches are available at www.michaeljfox.org.
