PODCAST DE LA MAÎTRISE DE L'EXERCICE

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.

EXERCICE
We explore how to design novel and more effective exercise interventions to improve mobility and cognition for healthy and clinical populations, including people with stroke, Parkinson's disease, and cognitive deficits.
MemoryLab-McGill-Opening-Windows-of-Neuroplasticity-dr-Marc-Roig1-DSC 9910
NEUROPLASTICITÉ
We investigate the mechanisms of neuroplasticity underlying changes in cognitive and motor function in response to aging, disease, and exercise. We use non-invasive brain stimulation and neuroimaging techniques such as TMS and EEG.
DSC 9898
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 to slow down their physical and cognitive deterioration.

VIEILLISSEMENT
We study the mechanisms that underlie age-related memory loss. To this end, we use behavioral interventions 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, neuroplasticity and memory.

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 develop exercise interventions to improve the quality of life of patients like you.

New study strengthens the link between exercise and memory

“We know that exercise works, but we don’t know which variables of exercise make the exercise more effective,” said Marc Roig, a Physical and Occupational Therapy Professor at McGill University who studies the effect of exercise on cognition and was not involved with the study. “We believe intensity is one of those factors”. – New York Times

Si haces estos ejercicios físicos de alta intensidad tu memoria te lo agradecerá

“Aunque sabemos que el ejercicio es bueno para diferentes aspectos de la cognición como la memoria no sabemos que parámetros del ejercicio son los más importantes,” Dr. Roig dice. “Es razonable pensar que a más alta su concentración, más efectos sobre la memoria.” – La Vanguardia

Linking physical exercise to video games

“You can combine exercise and video games,” Roig said. “A lot of people think they are opposed, but really, we are failing our younger generations. The hope of this paper is to show parents and younger people that you can improve at both simultaneously.” – McGill Reporter

15 minutes of cardio improves video game performance: study

While playing video games might not seem like the most physically demanding activity, new research out of McGill University suggests that when players exercise before playing a game, they play better. -CNBC
