Faridabad: Amrita Hospital launches a Human Motor Control Centre dedicated to patients with neurological disorders. The centre is specifically designed for the treatment of patients battling various neurological conditions, including parkinsonism, hyperkinetic movements, epilepsy, and functional neurological disorders. The centre aims to provide exceptional care and treatment to people suffering from movement disorders.
The centre was inaugurated by Dr Mark Hallett, Chief of the Human Motor Control Section at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at the National Institutes of Health.Commenting on the launch of the specialised centre, Dr Sanjeev K. Singh, Medical Director, Amrita Hospital Faridabad, said, ‘’We are thrilled to announce the launch of India’s first Human Motor Control Centre at Amrita Hospital Faridabad. This significant milestone marks a breakthrough in our mission to provide comprehensive care and support to individuals with neurological disorders. Through cutting-edge technology and collaboration with leading researchers, we aim to unravel the mysteries of human motor control and revolutionise the way we diagnose and treat these conditions.”

The centre will use EEG and EMG data to analyse human motor control and how our bodies move. It will also utilise advanced technologies like transcranial magnetic stimulation, focused ultrasound, and MRI data to deepen the understanding of human motor control disorders. In addition, the centre will collaborate with renowned institutions to generate novel data and enhance patient outcomes.

Dr Sanjay Pandey, Professor and Head of Dept. of Neurology at Amrita Hospital Faridabad, stated, “In India, there is a lack of extensive research on human motor control disorders despite the presence of millions of patients. Through in-depth analysis using neuro-physiological procedures, we aim to gain a better understanding of the physiology of human voluntary movement. Our unique approach involves utilising functional MRI data and collaborating with researchers worldwide to advance our understanding of human neurophysiology.’’
