About

 
 

MeDArT is a collaborative research project between

 

New Zealand’s Massey University and

France’s Institut Claude Pompidou and

Institut de Chimie de Nice, Université Côte d’Azur

 

Engaging science, drawing and technology to advance dementia research.

 

Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe a group of symptoms that change and damage the brain. Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia. The most common symptoms include changes in memory, thinking, behaviour, personality and emotion. Dementia is progressive and cannot be prevented or cured. Because its frequency increases with age, the number of people it strikes grows as the population ages. According to the World Alzheimer’s Report 2015 the number of people with dementia worldwide will nearly double every 20 years. Therefore, it is even more relevant than ever before to bring together research expertise from France and New Zealand to develop methodologies that engage the human senses for early diagnosis, recall, stimulation, autonomy and art therapy for people with dementia. 

 

1) Combining mindfulness with drawing workshops based on the hypothesis that fine motor capabilities are retained in the neurodegenerative pathologies of AD.

Working with these relatively preserved capacities, we can expect an improvement in the verbal and non-verbal communication level of the People with Dementia (PWD) by giving them an opportunity to express in another medium that isn’t oral. 

 

 

2) Studying writing/drawing to help early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease,

in order to establish a health plan for the person in need and their relatives as soon as possible, early detection of the discriminating signs of the disease, is fundamental a priority for AD research today.

 

 

3) Evaluating the potential influence of odour to artistic production and how these findings can then be potentially applied to creative workshops to engage fine motor skills for people with dementia.

The central question is the possibility of enhancing cognitive performance with the use of non-pharmaceutical protocol.

MindArt

Dual care for People with Dementia and their caregivers through mindfulness and material/digital drawing.
Massey University and L’Institut Claude Pompidou, CoBTEK/ CMRR, Nice
New Zealand/ Aotearoa and France Pilot Study: Massey University, L’Institut Claude Pompidou, CoBTEK/ CMRR, Nice, Auckland University and Dementia Wellington.

MindArT: Dual care involves monitoring People with Dementia (PWD) following drawing sessions for eight weeks that combine the principles of mindfulness with the meditative qualities of drawing that then expands into drawing on a digital interactive table or on an Ipad Pro. The caregivers undertake meditation sessions in parallel, based on the model of ‘Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction’ (MBSR). The incentive in combining mindfulness with drawing workshops is based on the hypothesis that fine motor capabilities are retained in the neurodegenerative pathologies of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). By working with these relatively preserved capacities, we can expect an improvement in the verbal and non-verbal communication level of the people with Dementia by giving them an opportunity to express in another medium that isn’t oral.

 

Updates


July 2019

On the 17th of July the Massey University team, Dementia Wellington and Dr Gary Cheung rolled out the first of eight sessions of the MindArt material and digital drawing programme in Wellington! The participants of these sessions are a mix of caregivers and health professionals for people with dementia (PWD) who will be able to give us feedback on the MindArt programme. This will enable us to refine the sessions and digital applications further, to be ready for ethics approved delivery to PWD at L’Institut Claude Pompidou in Nice, France in November 2019.

Photographs from the first two sessions:

MARCH 2019

MindArt has now developed its protocol and has applied for ethics in France for its first pilot study in late October/November at Institut Claude Pompidou. The participants will be 8 people who have mild dementia and their caregivers.

For Aotearoa New Zealand we have ethics approval for MindArt: Stage 1 which will trial the drawing programme with caregivers of people with dementia in July 2019 in collaboration with Dementia Wellington. This will inform further development of the programme and allow us to have a more targeted ethics application Health and Disability Ethics Committee for Stage 2, which will be the same study design but will involve people with mild dementia. This process will be led by our newest team member, medical researcher Dr. Gary Cheung (PhD, FRANZCP, MBChB) an academic and old age psychiatrist based in Auckland (please refer to his biography below).

Parallel to these developments is the ongoing work of Cameron May and Emma Febvre-Richards for the digital drawing applications.

Draw Me An Odour

MASSEY UNIVERSITY AND INSTITUTE OF CHEMISTRY - NICE, UNIVERSITÉ CÔTE D’AZUR,NICE

Draw me an odour is a transdisciplinary project dedicated to developing a deeper understanding of the links between the sense of smell, colour and gesture. The project will aim at evaluating the potential influence of an olfactory stimulation to artistic production and how these findings can then be potentially applied to creative workshops to engage fine motor skills for people with Dementia. The central question is the possibility of enhancing cognitive performance with the use of non-pharmaceutical protocol. Olfactory stimulations could be applied to promote better performance, concentration, recall, autonomy and flexibility in daily tasks.

 

Update

Draw me an Odour is well into its first stage, having developed a digital tool that allows us to explore how cognitive tasks are influenced by odour. The first stage is titled ‘Colour me an Odour’ as it explores odour/colour association with participants being asked to identify a colour that corresponds to the odour they are smelling, while also filling in a questionnaire that explores hedonicity, familiarity, intensity, relaxing effects, the context (urban, nature, inside, outside) and memory (positive/negative recollection, past or recent).

Dr Jérémie Topin of ChEmoSim lab, Institut de Chimie de Nice has now tested 55 participants and the results are looking incredibly promising. We are launching this study in New Zealand very shortly and also in South Korea at DGIST (Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology) in Daegu at the laboratory of Professor Cheil Moon. We will measure the possible difference among the populations and cultural impact. The question is to know if there exists a common invariant between different cultures. We then plan to take this to the Pacific Islands and South America. If you would like to participate, please follow the link below and Bri Simpson our research assistant will get back to you.

 

The ‘Draw Me An Odour’ Team

JÉRÉMIE TOPIN  I am revealing biomolecular mechanisms at spatial and temporal scales that remain difficult to observe experimentally, using numerical approaches. My research project is focused on the prediction of the odor, and/or the emotion induce by a molecule using its chemical structure as input. The long-term objective is to learn a computer how to smell.  As theoretical chemist, I am applying various methods of molecular modeling and chemoinformatic to investigate at the atomic scale the interactions between ligands and receptors. These researches are always conducted in the perspective of linking in sillico observations to in vitro or in vivo results.  As a physiologist, I am measuring human physiological variations induced by olfactory stimulations. These experiments are made to identify mood modulator.

Graphe

Alzheimer’s Writing Walking Talking Empowerment Massey University and Institut Claude Pompidou, CoBTEK/ CMRR, Nice

The Graphe project is based on using non-invasive advanced technologies to help early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) In order to establish a health plan for the person in need and their relatives as soon as possible, early detection of the discriminating signs of the disease, is fundamental. This allows the patient to maintain their quality of life and retain autonomy for as long as possible. Language and motor skills are the first functions to be compromised, with suspected AD patients reporting difficulties to read and write. Therefore, studying writing/drawing, the voice and the gait has become a priority for AD research today.

Update

We have a new name ‘Graphe’ (previously Alwrite) in order to better represent the foundation principles of this project. Dr Auriane Gros and Emma Febvre-Richards are scheduled for a protocol development workshop in October 2019 in Nice, France.

AURIANE GROS  Auriane Gros is lecturer in Neurosciences at the Medicine University of Nice and at CoBTeK (Cognition-Behavior-Technology) laboratory. She’s pedagogical Director of the Department of Speech Therapy in Nice . Her main field of research is the use of new technologies to assess and take care neurodegenerative diseases (such Primary Progressive Aphasia).
