Neurorehabilitation Engineering

Target: Research and development of Biomedical Engineering technologies to help restore, minimize and/or compensate the alterations, those typically appear on a person after suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or a stroke. Research is focused on the processes of cognitive rehabilitation and functional or physical rehabilitation. This research is performed in an interdisciplinary team in close collaboration with clinical researchers from the “Institut Guttmann” Neurorehabilitation Hospital in Barcelona and from Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation (CNBS), Harvard Medical School, USA
