Mark Your Calendar for the July 24 Weekly Research Seminar Series Session on “The Importance of Skillful Motor Activity in Cerebral Palsy Neurorehabilitation”

The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab Research Seminar Series offers weekly presentations held on Fridays from 12-1p.m. in the Sky Lobby Auditorium, 10th floor. The summer 2017 seminars will continue through Aug. 28.


The speaker for the July 24 session is Kathleen Friel, PhD, director, Early Brain Injury Recovery Clinic, Burke Medical Research Institute, and assistant professor, Weill Cornell Medicine. She will present on “The Importance of Skillful Motor Activity in Cerebral Palsy Neurorehabilitation.”


Dr. Friel will discuss the neurophysiological underpinnings of motor development and rehabilitation based on her work in a feline model of CP and her work using noninvasive brain stimulation (NIBS) in people who have CP. Her seminar will also highlight novel therapies that combine NIBS and robotic therapy in children and adults with CP.
