This book reports on the latest technological and clinical advances in the field of neurorehabilitation. It is, however, much more than a conventional survey of the state-of-the-art in neurorehabilitation technologies and therapies. It was written on the basis of a week of lively discussions between PhD students and leading research experts during the Summer School on Neurorehabilitation (SSNR2014), held September 15-19 in Baiona, Spain. Its unconventional format makes it a perfect guide for all PhD students, researchers and professionals interested in gaining a multidisciplinary perspective on current and future neurorehabilitation scenarios. The book addresses various aspects of neurorehabilitation research and practice, including a selection of common impairments affecting CNS function, such as stroke and spinal cord injury, as well as cutting-edge rehabilitation and diagnostics technologies, including robotics, neuroprosthetics, brain-machine interfaces and neuromodulation.

"The purpose of this compilation is to provide a survey of innovative technologies and clinical interventions that can be used to improve function in people with deficits resulting from neurological injury or illness. ... The primary audience is engineering researchers and engineering students interested in medical and biological applications of engineering and technology. However, the book will also be useful to clinicians and clinician-investigators who work with people with neurological causes of disability ... ." (Elliot J. Roth, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2016)
