Neuromodulation is a rapidly-growing field, encompassing the application of
targeted electrical/chemical/biological stimuli to the nervous system in
order to improve function and quality of life. At present, an increasing
number of implantable and non-invasive techniques are being proposed and
made available to the clinicians, to stimulate CNS plasticity and foster
recovery from motor, neurological and psychiatric disorders. Advancing in
the field of neuromodulation represents challenges to build accurate
neurophysiological models, understanding mechanisms of neuromodulation at
cellular and systems levels, defining optimal engineering methodologies,
and developing clinical application to treat patients. This session
provides an opportunity for researchers/engineers/clinicians to present and
discuss novel neurorehabilitation paradigms based on neuromodulation
targeted at the spinal and/or supraspinal level. Top quality papers at
NEUROMOD will be eligible for inclusion in the post-congress IOP journal of
best papers or even for the best-paper award to be presented at the main
