The Role of Contralesional Hemisphere in Motor Recovery After Stroke

Weekly Seminar | Not Open to the Public
Who Should Attend: 


The research focuses on mechanisms and modulation of human, non- human primate and rodent motor cortex reorganization. The overall goal of the research is to design innovative rehabilitation strategies that are based on these previously identified mechanisms to enhance motor function in patients after stroke.
