Fragilité mnésique et perte d’indépendance : méthode d’enrichissement sensori-moteur au bénéfice de l’encodage des activités de vie quotidienne via l’aidant numérique Lily. (21/02/2022 – 21/02/2025) : 

The robustness and precision of memory consolidation increase when learning occurs in a multimodal or multisensory context. Existing studies on healthy populations, spanning both the young and elderly, provide substantial evidence that an environment offering simultaneous stimulation across diverse sensory modalities can amplify memory retention. However, limited data address the applicability of this concept to patients with neurodegenerative disorders, where there is an often-profound decline in autonomy as the disease advances. In the early phases of neurodegenerative diseases, the neural networks responsible for motor and musical processing remain intact. Furthermore, memories rooted in bodily experiences tend to be more resilient to decay. This resilience is evident when the body engages in action-based situations or during active musical engagement. By leveraging a multimodal stimulation paradigm, there is potential to both stabilize existing memories and strengthen those vital for maintaining independence. Data underscore the potential of multimodality in enhancing memory, thus catalyzing further research for incorporation into routine care practices.
