Neural Rehabilitation Group


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.

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:
Human Locomotion Lab
Neuromuscular Coordination Lab
ARMS – Upper Limb Assistive and Rehabilitation Lab
Neuromodulation and Assessment Laboratory
