Procedures

The proband portal has access to the modern technical equipment of the DZNE and the University Hospital Tübingen, which allows the most important neuroscientific examinations to be carried out. These include:

Blood, nerve water analysis and skin biopsy

Biomaterial is extracted, analyzed and stored to determine different risk markers for neurodegenerative diseases. Combining the results of biomaterial and clinical examinations should help to characterize neurodegenerative diseases in order to be able to detect diseases as early as possible and to classify them better.

Neuropsychological Assessment

The aim of a neuropsychological assessment is to identify potential limitations of mental functions. For this purpose, special standardized tests are used. In addition, self-reports by probands, third-party reports by relatives and behavioral observations are also included.  This enables various aspects of performance such as perception, attention, memory and speech, but also emotional experience, personality and everyday behaviour to be recorded and assessed with regard to possible disease-related changes.

Quantitative motor methods / actigraphy / gait analysis

By means of special equipment, motor anomalies can be objectively measured. The use of these quantitative techniques makes it possible to detect disorders much earlier and to objectively identify the effects of new therapies.
