Description
REBoT will move its steps towards the understanding of the interrelationships between training-induced brain reorganization and sensorimotor function after cervical spinal cord injury (SCI). The final goal is to promote a “rewiring” of the cortex (or supra-spinal circuits) to bypass pathways interrupted by SCI through a progressive adaptation of the rehabilitative intervention. REBoT’ s concept is based on the hypothesis that practicing upper-body control of personalized physical or virtual interfaces brings about plastic changes in the sensorimotor pathways that can be exploited to design more effective and tailored assistive devices and neuro-prostheses. These...
