About Developmental Neurorehabilitation



Developmental Neurorehabilitation aims to enhance recovery and rehabilitation in individuals with brain injury and neurological disorders.



It focuses on a truly developmental perspective: the longitudinal consequences of neurological insult during childhood and the impact of such injury in later life. It covers childhood neurological disorders and treatment, encompassing factors of lifespan, neurological recovery and intervention at experimental, clinical and theoretical levels.



In order to best serve clinicians and researchers, Developmental Neurorehabilitation seeks to include an equal representation of basic and clinical research on development, recovery and rehabilitation.



Developmental Neurorehabilitation focuses on translational research, and actively pursues the interchange of ideas, and problems connecting basic and clinical scientists.
