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.
Faith A. Bazley
Faith A. Bazley (S'11) was born in Pittsburgh, PA, USA, in 1988. She received the B.S. in biomedical engineering from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH, USA, in 2010, and the M.S.E. degree in biomedical engineering from the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA, in 2012. During graduate studies, she focused on investigating the evolution of plasticity at the sensory cortex following injury using electrophysiology techniques, primarily somatosensory evoked potentials. She also studied the effects of hypothermia and stem cells for treatment of spinal cord injury and restoration of motor function. Since then, she worked in the Singapore Institute for Neurotechnology (SINAPSE) as Project Manager of the Neuroprosthesis program.

Abstract The adult central nervous system is capable of significant reorganization and adaptation following neurotrauma. After a thoracic contusive spinal cord injury (SCI) neuropathways that innervate the cord below the epicenter of injury are damaged, with minimal prospects for functional recovery. In contrast, pathways above the... Read more
