In this study we are testing the theory that by treating BP more intensively we will delay progression of the disease. We will also use state-of-the-art MRI imaging techniques to look at the mechanisms by which any beneficial effect of BP occurs.
In this study, the researchers will design a treatment manual that describes the principles of task-specific training and gives therapists examples of task-specific tasks.
