Neuromodulation and Neuroplasticity

The field of neurorehabilitation is relatively new, and some cutting edge therapies, including neuromodulation, that may be potentially beneficial topatients with CNS injuries or other disorders, are currently being investigated. The advances in the understanding of brain circuitry, together with the development of neurostimulation technologies have prompted us to explore the potential of electrical stimulation of the nervous system to promote functional recovery in patients with CNS disorders. Overall, advances in neuromodulation may offer new therapeutic interventions for patients with stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and epilepsy by counteract the abnormal network in the brain.

This session includes Neuromodulation by manipulating proprioception, pharmacology and post-surgical rehabilitation, Visual and auditory perception and Multidimensional approaches for multidimensional problems

 

Neuroplasticity, neuromodulation and neurorehabilitation are areas that, in general, have brought significant benefits to clinical intervention programs. Neuroplasticity is considered, then, as the ability to rearrange neural tissue, absorb and modify biological, biochemical and physiological mechanisms involved in intercellular communication, to adapt to stimuli received. Neuromodulation is characterized by the application of electrotherapy, although so recently have included other elements, such as high and low magnetic stimulation intensities, and sensoperceptual somatosensory stimulation, electromagnetic neuronavigation, and even acupuncture.
