The mission of the NEurological Mechanisms of Osteopathy (NEMO) project is to create new knowledges, discoveries and collaborations in osteopathic medicine integrating diverse research fields in a unique neuroscience research scenario.
The main goal is to understand the mechanisms by which osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) can produce beneficial effects. Specifically it will focus on neurological aspects of osteopathy and how the OMT produces neural changes.
Although the fairly robust clinical results of OMT, scientific literature lacks of pragmatic evidence regarding the effects of OMT on the central nervous system. The latter will be addressed using a pragmatic, precise and structured organisation.
