The Ganguy Lab at UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences is seeking multiple postdoctoral candidates or engineers for research into a “read/write” neural interface for stroke. The positions are based at the University of California, San Francisco (Weill Institute for Neuroscience, Mission Bay Campus).
Knee Jerk Reaction
Sunday, December 1, 2013
A training regimen designed to suppress abnormal reflexes appears to modify the nervous system in people with incomplete SCI, significantly improving their ability to walk.
Reflex control could improve walking after incomplete spinal injuries
Tuesday, February 5, 2013
A training regimen to adjust the body’s motor reflexes may help improve mobility for some people with incomplete spinal cord injuries, according to a study supported by the National Institutes of Health. During training, the participants were instructed to suppress a knee jerk-like reflex elicited by a small shock to the leg. Those who were able to calm hyperactive reflexes – a common effect of spinal cord injuries – saw improvements in their walking.
