Professionnel de recherche (C Schneider's lab)

Research project

Dr. Schneider's Neurostimulation and Clinical Neuroscience Laboratory at CHUL is currently conducting and developing several research projects involving various neurological or musculoskeletal populations. The projects aim at understanding the adaptation processing of the brain in each case and to test the after-effects of neurostimulation as a new therapeutic approach. All projects (stroke, traumatic brain injury, chronic pain such as low back pain or CRPS, neurodegenerative disease, cerebral palsy, etc.) are done in collaboration with health professionals. Project outcome measures (pre- and post- intervention) are as much neurophysiological (brain plasticity) as clinical (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, neuropsychology, etc.).
