The Mai Family Foundation grants funding for neurotechnology to advance neurorehabilitation for children.

The Burke-Blythedale team believes the first step toward discovering effective therapies for children with neurological injuries and impairments is to be able to track, measure and analyze both brain behavior and brain function with far greater accuracy and precision than the current status quo.

The science hope demands

 

We are a research institute dedicated to finding cures for chronic neurological disabilities. We transform groundbreaking research into clinical treatments so that people can see, talk, and walk again.

The longing for hope

More people than ever are living with chronic neurological issues caused by strokes, traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, and diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Their prospect for recovery too often feels hopeless, as they wait for major breakthroughs in treatments and cures. With brilliant and compassionate science that leads to life-changing cures, we can change this.

Our Role & Cause

Our Research

Faculty Spotlight

Friel Lab aims to improve hand function in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Our research focuses on the importance of motor activity in neurorehabilitation.
Our laboratory uses established and developing technologies to understand control of human voluntary movement, and functional recovery following neurological damage.
Ratan Lab's focus is to understand adaptive programs that facilitate the brain's ability to combat injury and to foster repair.
