NeuroRehabilitation and Robotics Laboratory

The main focus of the NeuroRehabilitation and Robotics Laboratory is to understand and promote neuroplasticity following neurological damage using advanced robotic technologies combined with non-invasive brain stimulation.

Aims

  • To investigate human voluntary movement, and functional recovery following brain and spinal cord injury.
  • To assess cognitive, sensory and motor functions underlying neuro-rehabilitation.
  • To assess therapeutic effectiveness of robotic and non-invasive brain stimulation.
  • To develop neuro-rehabilitation protocols.

Current Projects

  • Contralateral effects of eccentric resistance training on muscle function of impaired arm of stroke patients
  • Investigations of neuroplasticity in the motor and sensory system after early stroke.
  • Lesion-based anatomical dis-connectivity predictors of synergistic post stroke upper limb and aphasia recovery.
