The role of Neuroplasticity in upper limb rehabilitation: John Rothwell
John Rothwell is a professor of neurophysiology at the Institute of Neurology, Queen Square, London. His main area of interest is transcranial magnetic stimulation and motor control. Prof. Rothwell was educated at the University of Cambridge and progressed to a MRC Fellowship. He did his PhD under David Marsden and subsequently became head of the MRC Human Movement and Balance Unit. He has written over 400 papers and numerous chapters.
In this presentation Prof Rothwell will give an overview of current evidence of neuroplasticity and its relevance to recovery of function after neurological insult. He will further discuss the use of electrophysiological measures, including brain stimulation to investigate and enhance this process.
