Scientific summary

My work concerns the development and validation of quantitative tools for measurement and rehabilitation of dexterity in stroke (from spasticity to independent finger movements). My work covers the initial design and tool development, feasibility and validation testing, and clinical proof-of-concept studies.  Combining novel quantitative measures with neurophysiology techniques (EMG, TMS) and neuroimaging (lesion mapping, DTI, fMRI) will further knowledge on mechanisms of recovery. Ultimately this work aims at improving diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of dexterity in stroke patients and other neurological disorders. I also develop methods to measure sensorimotor impairments in schizophrenia.
