Neuromodulation of Motor Control

Neuroprosthetics & Rehabilitation Engineering

Pushing boundaries in knowledge and technology to restore impaired motor function

Linking science and patient needs.

Our research follows two main avenues, the investigation of novel neuromodulation methodologies for improving motor function in people with upper motor neuron disorders including spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis and to advance the understanding of the neural control of movement. Our mission is to enable a multi-level approach towards these goals by combining transdisciplinary knowledge and skills, integrating neurostimulation, physiology, neuroscience, and computer sciences, in collaboration and synergy with leading national and international partners in academia and clinics. The research topic provides multi-disciplinary educational perspectives for students from various academic disciplines to be trained in neurostimulation technologies as well as in human neurosciences of motor control and neurorehabilitation.
