Priming the Brain to Learn Using Robotics and Stimulation

Recovery After Stroke
Dr. Lara Boyd
DFP Classroom: FSC 2300

Recovery after stroke is slow and outcomes are highly variable.  In part this is because the dose of rehabilitation necessary is very large.  One approach to this problem is to pre-excite or prime the brain to learn using robotics or brain stimulation.  This talk will review both approaches and provide data to show how these technologies may be used to facilitate both brain activity and recovery of function after stroke.

Event directions

Once you are inside the Forestry Science building walk to the rear (south-east) of the building by passing through the large open study area and up the stairs to the 2nd level student (“treetop”) lounge area. Turn left, pass through the double doors, and room 2300 will be immediately to your right.
