The Motor Control and Rehabilitation labs cluster at the Ben Gurion University is a unique combination of three research laboratories, all belonging to the Physical Therapy department, which focus on three targeted research challenges: how healthy and impaired brains control and learn motor tasks. We use neuroscientific methods to aid in the rehabilitation of motor and cognitive skills (e.g., in Cerebral Palsy, or following Traumatic Brain Injury or Stroke), and to promote healthy aging. To that end, we use a variety of cutting-edge technologies, including a patent-based treadmill system, a split treadmill, 3-D motion detection systems, fNIRS brain recordings, custom-made mechanized shoes, and social robots.
