From neuroscience to neuro-rehabilitation: Transferring basic neuroscientific principles from laboratory to bedside

Edited by: Alexander Koenig

An article collection in Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation

Several new approaches for treatment of central nervous system (CNS) disorders have been successful in the laboratory setting, including the use of rehabilitation training strategies, which are often combined with electrical and/or pharmacological modulation of spinal locomotor circuitries to improve functional outcomes in people living with CNS impairment. This thematic series presents some of the current work that bridges the gap from basic science in a laboratory setting to clinical application. The articles represent a cross section of cutting edge approaches with the goal of transferring basic neuroscience principles from the laboratory to the proverbial "bedside".

This collection of articles has not been sponsored and articles have undergone the journal's standard peer-review process overseen by the Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editors. The Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editors declare no competing interests.
