Brief Summary:
The objective of this study to investigate, if learning and recall of a sequence of body movements (steps that realize a pattern on the ground) can be improved by self-produced music (having particular melodic-structures in relation to the pattern), compared to the same sound (a single tone) for each pattern in persons with multiple sclerosis compared to age and gender matched controls

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Multiple Sclerosis Other: learning and recall of a sequence of body movements Not Applicable

Arm Intervention/treatment
persons with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Other: learning and recall of a sequence of body movements
The objective of this study to investigate, if learning and recall of a sequence of body movements (steps that realize a pattern on the ground) can be improved by self-produced music (having particular melodic-structures in relation to the pattern), compared to the same sound (a single tone) for each pattern in persons

Healthy controls Other: learning and recall of a sequence of body movements
The objective of this study to investigate, if learning and recall of a sequence of body movements (steps that realize a pattern on the ground) can be improved by self-produced music (having particular melodic-structures in relation to the pattern), compared to the same sound (a single tone) for each pattern in persons




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. accuracy [ Time Frame: week 1 ]
    Number of correct sequences uttered, total number of sequences, precisions prior to completing three correct trials.

  2. precision [ Time Frame: week 1 ]
    Number of correct sequences uttered, total number of sequences, precisions prior to completing three correct trials.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Inter Step intervals [ Time Frame: week 1 ]
    The technology used can log time data. Therefore, the inter-step intervals can be calculated from the logged data.

  2. Inter Stride intervals [ Time Frame: week 1 ]
    The technology used can log time data. Therefore, the inter stride intervals can be calculated from the logged data.

  3. step duration on the tile [ Time Frame: week 1 ]
    The technology used can log time data. Therefore, the total time that each foot is placed on the tiles can be derived.
