An article collection in Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation
Recent studies of the mechanisms underlying plasticity and recovery following neurological injuries have originated innovative lines of research in neurorehabilitation. The development of new technologies to facilitate the performance of evaluation and intervention procedures has stimulated research on novel rehabilitation paradigms and more effective rehabilitation strategies. However, translation of novel interventions into clinical practice remains a challenge. Further investigation to evaluate the effectiveness of such rehabilitation approaches is needed. In this series, six articles summarize the results of current research focusing on evaluation and treatment strategies of relevance in neurorehabilitation.
