TNSRE serves the community of biomedical engineers and clinical researchers who work at the intersection of neuroscience and physical medicine. We publish novel approaches and technologies for better understanding neural systems, human movement, and the relationships between them, with a focus on assistive devices that improve life for patients, for practicing clinicians, and for everyday use.
Einat Ravid received the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel, in 1997, and the Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada, in 2013. From 1996 to 2007, she worked as an Engineer and Team Leader for Marvell Semiconductors and Intel. Since 2013 she has been a Post-Doctoral Fellow with the Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada. Her research interests are sensory and motor rehabilitation following neural injury and prevention of secondary complications of stroke and spinal cord injury.

Abstract Spastic hypertonus (muscle over-activity) often develops after spinal cord injury or stroke. Chemodenervating agents such as Botulinum toxin A (BtA) and phenol are often used to treat this condition. We have previously shown that the use of direct current (DC)... Read more
