Presented by Leon Morales-Quezada MD, MSc, PhD, MPH: Neurological rehabilitation can improve function, reduce symptoms, and improve the well-being of the patient suffering from diseases, injury, or disorders of the nervous system. A variety of techniques or methods are used for neurological rehabilitation, from physical and speech therapies to advanced robot-based treatments. Applied psychophysiology offers an alternative for patients to improve their neurological deficits, neuro and biofeedback can be applied in the clinical settings to facilitate cognitive and motor functions, or to be used as adjunct intervention for symptoms and conditions associated to neuropathology such as, seizures, depression, or autonomic dysfunction.
In his talk, Dr. Morales-Quezada will present the principles of neuroplasticity behind neurological rehabilitation, and how to implement neuro/biofeedback interventions in a third level rehabilitation hospital. Functional diagnostics and multidisciplinary management will also be covered in this talk.
