On behalf of all the organizers it is our pleasure to invite you to the 9th SUMMER SCHOOL ON NEUROREHABILITATION (SSNR2019) that will take place in Baiona (Spain) between September 15th-20th, 2019.
SSNR2019 will provide in depth education on advanced procedures for neurorehabilitation of motor dysfunction following stroke, SCI, CP and other neurological and neurodegenerative conditions, covering practical applications based on neuromodulation, neuroprosthetics, robotics interfaces and other combinational and technological approaches. World-class experts in various related disciplines will deliver plenary talks and a set of hands-on workshops will be organized.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Spain in September 2019!
