At the Center for Mobility and Rehabilitation Engineering Research, breast cancer studies are performed and state-of-the-art technology is used to find ways to improve treatment. Research scientist, Didier Allexandre, PhD, is conducting research on the structural and functional changes related to psychomotor impairment following chemotherapy in breast cancer patients. In line with prior work on the potential benefit and mechanism of mental imagery in rehabilitation, he is a co-investigator in a National Institute of Health grant, aimed at studying the benefit of high mental concentration/effort during physical exercise training in breast cancer patients with symptoms of weakness.
