Inaugural Lecture Prof. Sharon Abrahams - Mind Matters in Motor Neurone Disease
From Rebecca Devon
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.
Recorded on 28 October 2015 at the University of Edinburgh's 50 George Square.
