  • 2015 Summer School on Neurorehabilitation (SSNR2015)

    We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this announcement
    2015 Summer School on Neurorehabilitation
    El Saler (Valencia), Spain
    September 13-18

    Dear colleagues,

    On behalf of all the organizers it is our pleasure to invite you to the 5th SUMMER SCHOOL ON NEUROREHABILITATION (SSNR2015) that will take place in El Saler (Valencia, Spain) from September 13 to 18, 2015.

    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 SSNR2015 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 Spain!
