Alexander Thiel – “The neurobiology of recovery from post-stroke aphasia”

31 March 2011 @ 16 h 00 min - 17 h 00 min

| Free

Alexander Thiel, Associate Professor, Department of Neurology & Neurosurgery, McGill University will give a talk at BRAMS on March, 31st 2011, at 16h entitled « The neurobiology of recovery from post-stroke aphasia».

ABSTRACT
Recovery from post-stroke aphasia is determined by molecular mechanisms (neuroplasticity and neuroinflammation) as well as re-learning of language processing pathways on a systems level. In this talk will give an overview about these mechanisms and based on this discuss the possibilities of non-invasive brain stimulation as complementary therapy for aphasia.

 

ABOUT ALEXANDER THIEL
Dr. Thiel is associate Professor for Neurology at McGill University. As a stroke neurologist his research focuses on understanding the pathophysiological processes underlying post-recovery using molecular (PET), structural (DTI) and functional (fMRI) imaging. He develops treatment protocols which employ non-invasive brain stimulation methods (tDCS and TMS) to facilitate language recovery.
