Event Details

The Marilyn R. Lindenauer Distinguished Speaker Series highlights groundbreaking ideas and emerging technologies related to the care of patients with cerebral palsy.

 

"Systems Neuroscience Insights Into Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy"

Jason Carmel, MD, PhD is a child neurologist and motor system neuroscientist interested in central nervous system injury and repair.  He studies brain control of movement both in health and after injury. Using a combination of anatomy, physiology (brain mapping), and behavior, he has been able to identify the brain circuits that adapt to developmental brain injury. 

The Motor Recovery Lab that he directs uses activity-based therapies, including electrical stimulation and intensive behavioral training to promote recovery of function. He has demonstrated that stimulation of brain to spinal cord connections causes them to sprout, form functional connections, and restore motor skill.

In addition to directing a rodent-based research laboratory, Dr. Carmel directs a clinical research program that seeks to apply neuroscience advances to children with cerebral palsy. His goal as a physician-scientist is to translate the science of brain repair into better treatments for children with cerebral palsy and others living with impaired movement.

Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center

Bridging Care for a Lifetime

The Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center is the first of its kind on the East Coast. We are devoted to providing care to patients with cerebral palsy (CP) and their families, as well as guiding care during the transition from childhood to adulthood through an expanding network of adult care specialists knowledgeable about cerebral palsy and related disorders. As CP is a condition not limited to children, the Center seeks to expand both access to and knowledge of treatments and options for adults with cerebral palsy.
