Perception and Multisensory Integration in Neurological Patients Using fMRI

The recruitment status of this study is unknown. The completion date has passed and the status has not been verified in more than two years.
Verified September 2011 by Hadassah Medical Organization.

The main objective of the study is to explore and map brain areas involved in sensory perception and multisensory integration in patients with central or peripheral neurological damage. The investigators hypothesize for example, that a change (compare to healthy subjects) in the perceptual maps and body representation could be detected and characterize in patients suffering from impairments of peripheral nerve conduction.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • assessing hemodynamic responses by measurement of the Blood-oxygen-level dependence(BOLD)signal [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Distinct maps of sensory and multisensory representations related to certain disorders will be assed by measurement of the Blood-oxygen-level dependence(BOLD)signal.
