Amrita hospital Faridabad launches human motor control centre

June 23, 2023: Amrita Hospital in Faridabad has recently unveiled a dedicated Human Motor Control Centre to cater to patients with neurological disorders. This specialized facility is designed to provide exceptional care and treatment for individuals facing various neurological conditions, including parkinsonism, hyperkinetic movements, epilepsy, and functional neurological disorders. The centre's primary objective is to deliver comprehensive support to people suffering from movement disorders.

The inauguration of the centre was done by Dr. Mark Hallett, Chief of the Human Motor Control Section at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, National Institutes of Health. Dr. Sanjeev K. Singh, the Medical Director of Amrita Hospital Faridabad, expressed his enthusiasm about this significant milestone. He stated, "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 employ EEG and EMG data to analyze human motor control and the mechanics of bodily movements. Additionally, advanced technologies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation, focused ultrasound, and MRI data will be used to deepen the understanding of motor control disorders. Collaborative partnerships with renowned institutions will also be fostered to generate novel data and improve patient outcomes.

Dr. Sanjay Pandey, Professor and Head of the Department of Neurology at Amrita Hospital Faridabad, highlighted the scarcity of extensive research on human motor control disorders in India, he 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.’’
