Significance

Because of the cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, and cerebellum experience complex failures in conditions such as stroke, Parkinson's disease, and spinocerebellar degeneration, the nature of these conditions is complex and diverse. As a result, currently, the nature of these conditions is unclear, and symptomatic treatments remain the status quo.

This project seeks to elucidate the operating principle of the three motor centers, and, based on the results, to promote complex research such as the development of systems that feed back into treatment and convert the complex conditions found in neurological disease into objective parameters.

Objectives

  • To elucidate the functional collaboration of the cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, and cerebellum in motion control
  • To develop an algorithm to analyze and visualize the pathology of various movement disorders
  • To realize the practical use of a Neurological Disease Treatment Navigator that will guide the treatment of neurological disease
