Neuromodulation in Neurological Rehabilitation

Course Description

When behaviors are distorted or impaired it is possible to design therapeutic training programs which target neurological renormalization at all system levels. This presentation will explore theories of recovery after brain injury looking at such concepts as: compensation vs. recovery; excitability/inhibitory balance; synaptic strengthening. It will also examine various neurotechnologies and look at neuromodulation as therapy. Case studies will be offered.


Participants will be able to;

  • Participants will be able to describe at least two attributes of experience dependent neuronal activity.
  • Participants will be able to list the three theories of recovery after brain injury.
  • Participants will be able to explain the role of learning in cognitive/motor restoration.
