About this Research Topic
The exploration of the effects of neurorehabilitation and NIBS on plasticity by advanced technologies (i.e., functional MRI, near infrared spectroscopy, high-density EEG, etc.) is a relevant goal and may represent a surrogate outcome measure in the near future.
The correlation between central nervous system lesions to clinical findings and outcome represents the basis for personalized medicine in neurorehabilitation, a promising perspective to explain the different individual response to the treatment, and to improve the quality of care. The timing of neurorehabilitation seems to play a relevant role and the definition of new approaches to the acute and chronic phases of disease is an important field of investigation. Moreover, new randomized controlled trial designs aimed to explore the role of combined drug and physiotherapy treatment have accumulated.
Finally, despite for many years evidence-based medicine was, to some extent, far from the field of neurorehabilitation, the interest for systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and consensus conferences is increasing. Taken together, these technological and methodological advances are changing the face of neurorehabilitation.
This Research Topic will be open to all authors interested in these new features and approaches in neurorehabilitation. Original papers, reviews, case reports, commentaries, and letters will be all welcome.
