  • Summer School on Neurorehabilitation (SSNR2014)


    Baiona, (Spain)
    September 14-19

    Dear colleagues,

    On behalf of the all the organizers it is our pleasure to invite you to the 4th SUMMER SCHOOL ON NEUROREHABILITATION (SSNR2014) that will take place in Baiona (Spain) from September 14 to 19 of 2014.

    Research about the assessment and management of recovery after neural damage is a constantly evolving area that today requires an early convergence of clinical and technical perspectives. This is why the SSNR2014 "Meeting Clinical and Patient Needs and Expectations" aims to provide in depth education on advanced procedures for neurorehabilitation of motor dysfunction following stroke, spinal cord injury, and cerebral palsy, covering practical applications based on innovative neuroprosthetic systems, robotic interfaces and other combinational approaches.

    We are looking forward to welcoming you in Baiona September 2014!

    Baiona, both a tourist destination and an active fishing port, is located in the south of the Rias Baixas region, and is protected from the open sea by a breathtakingly beautiful bay. Its geographical location offers natural, unsurpassable protection for fishing and leisure sailing vessels alike. The climate is characterized by mild temperatures throughout the year. The town's old quarter was declared an "Area of Historical and Artistic interest" by the Galician Regional Government on March 1, 1993, to mark the five hundredth anniversary of the arrival of The Pinta, a caravel-type vessel used by Christopher Columbus, which arrived in Baiona with news of the discovery of America
