A new study, led by scientists at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, helps explain the phenomenon of movement chunking, which has important implications for the treatment and rehabilitation of patients with neurological disorders.
Certain anatomical properties of the brain – not the initial injury – determine most of a patient’s risk of developing chronic pain, according to a new study.
The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago’s new 242-bed research hospital will put scientists and physicians in shared spaces, allowing innovation and treatment to collide.
A Northwestern Medicine study has shown how signals from neurons in the motor cortex produce precise and consistent movement over time, findings that could inform the design of brain machine interfaces.
The Northwestern University Prosthetics-Orthotics Center held a closing ceremony for their second graduating class of Masters of Prosthetics and Orthotics students.
Injections of botulinum toxin improved active arm movement for stroke and brain trauma patients in a clinical trial that involved Northwestern Medicine co-investigator Christina Marciniak, MD, ’85 GME.
Students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty showcased their work in the field of rehabilitation medicine at Feinberg’s fifth annual Movement and Rehabilitation Sciences (MRS) Training Day.
Scientists from Feinberg and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago developed a bionic leg that uses electromyographic (EMG) signaling to give patients with above-knee amputations better control over movement than current prosthetics.
Medical Scientist Training Program students and twin sisters Lauren Smith, ’15 PhD, and Adrienne Long, ’15 PhD, discuss their recently published research projects and their futures as physician-scientists.
A new Northwestern Medicine study has shown that playing recorded family stories can help wake up coma patients’ unconscious brain more quickly, and with improved recovery.
