An Advanced ERC grant

Welcome to our project website.
The 4D-EEG project investigates the relation between arm movements and the brain activation patterns of stroke patients, in the early period (up to 6 months) after stroke onset. This is usually the period when most recovery occurs. To associate movement behavior with brain activity, our project combines high-density electroencephalogram and system identification techniques.
Our goal is to understand how stroke patients recover control of their arm. We expect to reveal why only a few patients regain complete use of their arm, and which brain activation patterns indicate better chances of recovery. In the future, this knowledge will help obtaining maximum recovery by adjusting the rehabilitation programs according to the patterns of brain activity present in each patient. Read more details here.
