This study conducted by Dr.Leonard Trujillo examined the relationship between IM protocol and cognitive plasticity along with cognitive retention and fine motor skills of older adults. The protocol was done with occupational therapists and/or graduate occupational therapy students present.
In order to track cognitive and motor function all participants underwent pre/post test assessments. These tests were used to compare the differences between assessment scores before and after IM intervention. The study outlines the relation between positive percentage of change on IM performance and positive percentage of change on the cognitive and motor assessments.
