Stroke: from mechanism to neurotechnology

2 day WorkShop with world known experts in stroke recovery and neurotechnology. During the WS underlying mechanisms based on multimodal systems neuroscience, phenotyping and biomarking of patients for personalization and innovative treatment strategies based on neurotechnology will be discussed.

Translational neuroengineering

The students will be introduced in the physiology and pathophysiology of core neurological disorders, such as e.g., stroke, spinal cord injury or neurodegenerative disorders, followed by aspects of respective clinical translational, technological development and neuroengineering in these clinical domains and important regulatory, neuroethical and R&D points. The course content is organized

Advanced methods for human neuromodulation

Neuromodulation is an expending field especially in human translational neuroscience and neurotechnology. This course will introduce to different approaches / technologies for neuromodulation, their underlying mechanisms of action and application in humans in healthy and pathological conditions.
