Services for rehabilitation following a stroke are experiencing profound regression, necessitating the interface of new technologies, knowledge of plasticity within the nervous system, and cost-effective treatments as they are gradually being directed toward home-based environments. In this presentation, Dr. Wolf will explore some of the discoveries governing mixed reality as a vehicle to foster improvement in upper extremity function following a stroke while exploiting principles underlying neuroplasticity. His observations may offer a preview of the opportunities and responsibilities involved in bringing rehabilitation following catastrophic injury, such as a stroke, into the home environment.
A public reception will precede this event in the VTC Café at 5:00 p.m.
