The research activities of the Department of Cognitive Science at MIT Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston have shown that, through rehabilitation in a virtual environment, the central nervous system receives feedback signals increased (augmented feedback) which, during the execution of voluntary movements even if altered by the disease, induces profound changes in cortical and subcortical synaptic and cellular level that are responsible for the restoration of motor activity even in patients who, for example, have had extensive head injuries and strokes.
The virtual environment is developed from the operational protocol resulting from a treatment method in neuromotor virtual environment, developed at the Department of Cognitive Sciences at MIT, Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, using the most advanced knowledge of neurophysiological processes of motion learning and memorization processes.... more
