The mission of the laboratory is to develop neurotechnologies that improve functional recovery after neurological disorders such as spinal cord injury, stroke and Parkinson’s disease. These developments are derived from a systematic investigation of the targeted neural mechanisms. This mechanism-based approach relies on synergies between multiple experimental models including in silico simulations (Human Brain Project) and long-lasting in vivo experiments in rodent (Campus Biotech) and nonhuman primate (University of Fribourg) models of neurological disorders—as well as clinical studies that are conducted at the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV), in close collaboration with Prof Jocelyne Bloch who leads the unit for functional neurosurgery.
