    Exploring the electro-mechanical coupling of fasciculations in motor neurone disease

    The full title of this study, in which I participated this morning is "Exploring the electro-mechanical coupling fasciculations in motor neurone disease using surface electromyography and ultrasound; a feasibility study".

    The researchers want to explore and compare the different outputs of these 2 techniques when used together. They believe it can offer significant insight into how the function of neurons become impaired in MND.

    In the overall aims to create a technique which can be used more extensively in future clinical trials as a way of detecting the potential benefits of new drug therapies in MND.

    Trial undertaken by nice pair of pre-doctoral researchers, one a biomedical physicist and the other one a medical doctor in the early stage of his training.
