Mind Matters in Motor Neurone Disease

In this video from The University of Edinburgh, watch “Professor Sharon Abrahams, Personal Chair in Neuropsychology, deliver her inaugural lecture entitled Mind Matters in Motor Neurone Disease.

In this lecture, Prof. Abrahams discusses her work with people living with a degenerative disease and in particular motor neurone disease.

This disease was commonly thought to affect the system controlling movement exclusively, but Prof. Abrahams’ work has contributed to demonstrating that the mind matters in motor neurone disease and that a large number of people will experience changes in cognition and behaviour in addition to progressive physical disability.”
