Brief Summary:
  1. Validation of translated Motor Imagery ability questionnaire MIQ-RS
  2. Investigating the Motor Imagery ability in patients with traumatic brain injury

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Traumatic Brain Injury Healthy Other: Test battery to measure the motor imagery ability

Detailed Description:
  1. Translation of the MIQ-RS following the WHO guidelines. Followed by a validation of this translated questionnaire in patients with traumatic brain injury and in healthy volunteers.
  2. Investigating the motor imagery ability using 3 different test

    • MIQ-RS (movement imagery questionnaire)
    • TDMI (time dependent motor imagery)
    • mental chronometry test

Patients and controls will perform all 3 test twice with an interval of 2 weeks to measure the test-retest reliability.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Traumatic brain injury

Patients who have suffered a traumatic brain injury will be assessed with a test battery including

  • a motor imagery ability questionnaire (MIQ-rs)
  • a mental rotation test
  • a chronometry test (TDMI)
Other: Test battery to measure the motor imagery ability
Participants will perform 3 different tests to measure the motor imagery ability
Active Comparator: Control

Healthy volunteers matched for age, sex and educational level will be assessed with the same test battery including

  • a motor imagery ability questionnaire (MIQ-RS)
  • a mental rotation test
  • a chronometry test (TDMI)
Other: Test battery to measure the motor imagery ability
Participants will perform 3 different tests to measure the motor imagery ability



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Motor imagery ability [ Time Frame: 2 assessments with an interval of 2 weeks ]
    Results of test battery assessing motor imagery ability

  2. Validity translated MIQ-RS [ Time Frame: 2 assessments with an interval of 2 weeks ]
    Validity of the translated MIQ-RS in patients with traumatic brain injury and healthy volunteers


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Test-retest reliability [ Time Frame: 2 assessments with an interval of 2 weeks ]
    Test- retest reliability of the motor imagery ability test battery
