Learn about different types of stimulation targeting connections in the brain, spinal cord, and nerves to improve movement in patient population.
Our project aims to apply neurostimulation to improve motor function in people with spinal cord injury. We will assess neurophysiological changes as well as functional changes after the application of neurostimulation. The project involves cutting-edge neuromodulation techniques using transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial direct current stimulation, and transcutaneous electrical stimulation as rehabilitation intervention. Students will learn about different types of stimulation applied to target connections in the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves during the project.
Students will aim to make a poster and/or write an abstract on the outcome of this project.
