Since the ancient time of human history human intelligence has been nourished and applied for the betterment of society. Human being gained knowledge with the expense of new problems, mortality and hindrance. Though, such pebbles never became successful to restrict the progress of humankind. Those inconveniences rather made them more experienced and efficient. Documentary evidences always assisted in the sustained progress in gaining knowledge. More appropriately, documentation on problem solving methodologies is still now assisting the researchers towards novel inventions in biological field. Such rationale of realization has influenced me to take a responsible step to accumulate some timely research works in a special issue entitled 'Motor Recovery Research' for the 'International 'Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation'. For the same, I, Dr. Fuminari Kaneko-the ‘guest editor’ of this special issue would like invite you to contribute relevant articles within the scope of the journal.
Motor recovery research is the study of patient recovery from stroke. It is a multidisciplinary field of knowledge related to the study and function of nerve organization. It involves the interaction between the central nervous system and the musculoskeletal system and helps to coordinate the information processing, mechanics, physics, and cognition. Motor recovery may vary depending on the person’s ability for recovery & stroke complications. It is discovered from the scientific researches that central nervous system possesses the ability for recovery of some functions & hence is adaptive.
It is also reported that, practicing the regained skills leads to a complete recovery & a healthier life. The goal of a Motor recovery research program is to help in recalling various skills & abilities that were lost due to the brain stroke. Motor recovery can help the patient to fight the consequences of brain stroke & improve quality of life. For the next release, International Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation will be focusing on the Special issue proposed above. International Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation is a bi-monthly, peer reviewed, and open access publication. It is a scientific, scholar journal for practitioners and rehabilitation researches in various medical and surgical specialties and rehabilitation disciplines.
As a part of this special issue researchers and scholars are invited to submit manuscripts on all aspect of motor recovery research but not limited to the topics such as impairment and recovery mechanisms after brain injury such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, gait, and brachial plexus injury, etc.
The Journal follows a stringent double blind peer review process for all submitted manuscripts. We welcome manuscripts for the special issue till “August 25th, 2017”. The submitted manuscripts would be published by “October 15th, 2017”. As the submission for the special issue would be limited in number & would be processed on a First come First Serve basis.
