Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston is conducting a study aimed to restore lost functions to stroke survivors:
In general, “we’re still limited in how much we can influence the recovery process,” said Dr. Joel Stein , chief medical officer at Spaulding, who is overseeing the electrical stimulation study. “But in the last 10 or 15 years, we’ve recognized that there is recovery of the brain to a meaningful degree, and, equally important, we can influence that recovery.”
