Neuroplasticity Luncheon With Speaker

WED, 28 OCT // Ticketed Event

Randolph NudoThe NEW ACRM Neuroplasticity Group is proud to sponsor a luncheon on 28 OCT featuring special guest speaker, Randolph J. Nudo, PhD presenting Zen and the Art of Brain Repair.  Come meet the leaders and other like-minded colleagues focused on neuroplasticity research and its translation into clinical practice. READ MORE >>

Dr. Nudo is professor and vice chair of Research, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine and the director of the Landon Center on Aging at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Dr. Nudo’s Cortical Plasticity Laboratory focuses on understanding the brain’s self-repair capacity after injury, and developing novel therapeutic approaches based on neuroscientific principles.Neuroplasticity Group icon

These symposia received the highest ratings of all neuroplasticity submissions reviewed by the 2015 Program Committee …

Neuroplasticity in Neurorehabilitation: A Matter of Learning, Reward, Time and Manipulation of Barriers and Facilitators #3402

PRESENTERS:  Leonardo G. Cohen, MD; Gwendolyn L. Kartje, MD, PhD; Douglas G. Wallace, PhD, MA; Theresa Louise-Bender Pape, Dr.PH, MA, CCC-SLP/L, FACRM

This symposium will provide an overview of neuroplastic processes related to neurorehabilitation of motor and cognitive impairments. The principles of neuroplasticity will be illustrated with evidence from ongoing research developing treatments that apply principles of motor learning and reward. To further expand neurorehabilitation boundaries, pharmacological, biological and electrophysiological research currently being conducted to manipulate neuroplasticity and enhance neurorehabilitation will also be presented. The preliminary research findings will illustrate how barriers and facilitators of plasticity can be manipulated to enhance function and how differences in plasticity according to gender and time after injury inform development of these treatments.


Maximizing Neuroplasticity Following Brain Injury #3198

PRESENTERS:  Argye Hillis, MD; Randolph Nudo, PhD

The purpose of this symposium is to highlight the advances in understanding neuroplasticity following brain injury, and the potential to maximize neuroplasticity for recovery of motor and language functions. Special attention will be also given to the role of hemispatial neglect in recovery of function.


Neuroplasticity of Attention and Memory Systems #3476

PRESENTERS:  Sonja Blum, MD, PhD; Argye Hillis, MD

The purpose of this symposium is to highlight the advances in understanding neuroplasticity following brain injury, and the potential to maximize neuroplasticity for recovery of attention and memory functions.


Update on the NIH Brain Initiative and other Research Opportunities across the ICF Spectrum #4587

PRESENTERS: Drs. Ralph Nitkin and Mary Ellen Michel


Neuroplasticity in Spinal Cord Injury: Some Lessons Learned so Far #3889

PRESENTERS: Keith Tansey, MD, PhD

The symposium will explore neuroplasticity after spinal cord injury. We will discuss anatomical and physiological substrates for plasticity and how plasticity can be measured in animal models or humans using anatomical techniques, imaging or neurophysiological methods. We will discuss how those methods could be used to localize plasticity post-injury, to monitor changes in it and to determine whether that plasticity can be modified so as to improve recovery (such as in gait) and/or diminish pathophysiology (such as with neuropathic pain or spasticity). Data from both animal models and human studies will be presented to illustrate these issues.
