In the Neural Rehabilitation Group (NRG) we focus our main research efforts to develop methods and technologies that could help understanding and controlling human biological systems and their interaction with the environment. In particular, interdisciplinary research program is established with the mission of collaboratively pursuing the development of innovative methodologies, interventions, and assistive devices to improve the quality of care and quality of life for persons with disabilities.
In this context, our goals cover the analysis and evaluation of the neuromusculoskeletal and cognitive systems that allow humans to produce movement and decisions in unstructured environments. We actively pursue innovative and impactful research toward the development of methods that improve functional or health outcomes of individuals with physical disabilities, including but not limited to individuals with stroke, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy. In addition, we are interested on cognitive and physical human enhancement through natural or artificial means.
We are a multidisciplinary group combining knowledge from the areas of Neuroscience, Physical Therapy, Biomechanics, Control, Robotics, Modeling, Machine Learning, and others. Currently, we are organized into four complementary laboratories:
