correct answer c.
Upon analysis of question, we can see that an action i.e relearn seemingly simple task and why the action is to be performed i.e. training the healthy areas of brain, indicating that the second the portion after the comma modifies the entire previous sentence.

A: which modifies speaking or walking >> wrong
B: that modifies same as A
C: correct , present participle -training...- modifies entire clause and have been damaged correctly uses present prefect tense to show the continuous effect of an action
D: that are being damaged is present continuous and illogical, changes meaning
E: same as A

Straight C;
In A and B, the relative pronouns which and that should refer to the simple tasks; on the contrary, they are referring to speaking. D and E are out because 'areas that are being damaged' is a wrong interpretation. The areas have already been damaged.

Hi egmat.
Could you please help me with this question.
If training is modifying the clause, it should make sense with the subject of the previous clause, that is 'some patients'
So are some patients training themselves?
What I understand from the question is that the act of relearning is training.

Imo C
Correct modifier
It is not walking or speaking it is the act of doing these activities that helps .
D suggests the brains are in the process of getting damaged
E is wrong for using which

IMO there is an error in underlined part as well, it should be such as walking and speaking, instead of like walking ....

I couldn't understands two points about the question.
1. How come we can use "like" to give examples.
2 ing modifiers should modify the whole sentences or at least object of the clause. But here?
