Structural plasticity in MS patients with ataxia: longitudinal changes in white matter microarchitecture associated with proprioceptive training

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Lack of balance is among the most common and disabling symptoms that patients with MS experience

during the course of the disease. Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is a powerful means of studying the

organization of white matter. DTI parameters can be correlated with clinical or behavioural data to define

mechanisms of functional impairment or recovery. This approach will shed light on the balance deficit in MS

patients and its improvement following proprioceptive training.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
