MASTERS IN EXERCISE PODCAST

Dr. Roig interviews leaders in the field of exercise prescription. We talk with prominent researchers who investigate how exercise can improve different aspects of quality of life in different populations and clinical groups. The conversations cover a wide range of topics, including what type of exercise is best to improve brain health and reduce age related cognitive decline and how can exercise improve mobility in people with neurological conditions such as patients with Stroke, Parkinson's Disease or Multiple Sclerosis, and what type of exercise is the best to improve cognitive development in children.

EXERCISE
We explore how to design novel and more effective exercise interventions to improve mobility and cognition for non-disabled people but also for people with clinical conditions such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease as well as people with cognitive deficits.

NEUROPLASTICITY
We investigate the mechanisms that support the brain changes that occur as a result of aging and the disease process as well as in response of other rehabilitative interventions involving exercise or non-invasive brain stimulation.

NEUROREHAB
We combine different interventions (e.g. exercise) and techniques (e.g. non-invasive brain stimulation) to design treatments for people that need to recover after stroke or need too slow down their physical and cognitive deterioration.

AGING
We study the mechanisms that underlie age-related memory loss. To this end, we use behavioral and non-invasive brain stimulation to understand why, as we age, we experience problems to remember different types of information.

SLEEP
We combine different interventions (e.g. exercise) to improve sleep quality and architecture in people with poor sleep quality. We also investigate synergies between sleep, sleep deprivation, sleep architecture, brain plasticity and memory.

CHECK OUT OUR PATIENT TRAINING PROGRAMS

Have you suffered a stroke or been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and you are interested in exercise? We are running several individualized high quality patient training programs. Training is free but in return we will ask you to participate in our research activities. These programs will improve your health and at the same time will allow us to learn more about how to improve exercise interventions to improve the quality of life of patients like you.
