Participants required: Imagining and visualising movements in Parkinson’s

An opportunity for people with Parkinson’s to take part in research looking at imagined movement.


Charlotte Growcott, a PhD student at The University of Manchester, is exploring how people with Parkinson’s define and understand motor imagery. Motor imagery refers to how an individual imagines movements in real time without actually physically moving. The aim of the research is to gain a greater understanding of the definition of motor imagery and how it can be used to better the lives of people with Parkinson’s.

The researchers are looking for 250 people who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, and who also have access to a laptop or tablet, to participate. The study will involve completing an online questionnaire which will take a minimum of 45 minutes. The team can offer help in completing the questionnaire.

If you are interested in taking part please complete our online questionnaire:
