Biomarkers and innovative therapies of motor deficits in stroke

Am I rotating?

Am I moving?

Am I a square?

Although significant advancements have been reached for the hyper acute phase of stroke, there are still issues to solve, especially after 24 hours and later: (i) the identification of biomarkers for motor recovery and, (ii) the development of new innovative strategies including non-invasive brain stimulation and e-health(digital rehab programs, Do It Yourself, etc..) approaches.

The overall goal of our team is to develop complementary approaches (coupling clinical, neuroimaging and neurophysiological methods) to address these two lines of research(biomarkers and novel innovative strategies). Elucidating the mechanisms of cerebral plasticity during motor recovery is the main component linking our two axes.

Theme 1: Identifying novel structural and functional biomarkers for stroke outcome
