Baiona,  (Spain)

September 14-19



Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the all the organizers it is our pleasure to invite you to the
4th SUMMER SCHOOL ON NEUROREHABILITATION (SSNR2014) that will take place in
Baiona (Spain) from September 14 to 19 of 2014.

Research about the assessment and management of recovery after neural
damage is a constantly evolving area that today requires an early
convergence of clinical and technical perspectives. Furthermore, the use of
robotic platforms to improve rehabilitation therapies is greatly
increasing, but the question on how are these technologies improving
therapies is still an open question. This is why the SSNR2014 "Meeting
Clinical and Patient Needs and Expectations" aims to provide in depth
education on advanced procedures for neurorehabilitation of motor
dysfunction following stroke, spinal cord injury, and cerebral palsy,
covering practical applications based on innovative robotic neuroprosthetic
systems and other combinational approaches.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Baiona September 2014!

Baiona, both a tourist destination and an active fishing port, is located
in the south of the Rias Baixas region, and is protected from the open sea
by a breathtakingly beautiful bay. Its geographical location offers
natural, unsurpassable protection for fishing and leisure sailing vessels
alike. The climate is characterized by mild temperatures throughout the
year. The town's old quarter was declared an "Area of Historical and
Artistic interest" by the Galician Regional Government on March 1, 1993, to
mark the five hundredth anniversary of the arrival of The Pinta, a
caravel-type vessel used by Christopher Columbus, which arrived in Baiona
with news of the discovery of America
