Pundik, Svetlana, MD, MSc

We have, thus far, focused on utilizing functional neuroimaging to discern substrates of movement control and movement relearning-related plasticity in a post-stroke brain to draw upon their significance for rehabilitation. Furthermore, using noninvasive brain stimulation, including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), we have explored ways to harness plasticity within implicated…

Plow, Ela, PhD

My laboratory’s research interests broadly include brain stimulation, motor control, neuroimaging, clinical neuroscience and rehabilitation. We have, thus far, focused on utilizing functional neuroimaging to discern substrates of movement control and movement relearning-related plasticity in the healthy vs. post-stroke brain to draw upon their significance for rehabilitation. Furthermore, using noninvasive brain stimulation, including transcranial magnetic…

Electrical activation of the paralyzed neuromuscular system (functional electrical stimulation-FES) provides a means for restoration of control of the paralyzed extremities. My research involves the development of neuroprostheses that use FES to restore hand/arm control to individuals of cervical level spinal cord injury (quadriplegia). Areas of Interest FES systems for control of the extremity including…

Onders

Onders, Raymond, MD

Dr. Onders spent his early years at UH developing a minimally invasive procedure to allow ventilator-free breathing for paralyzed patients.  More recently, Dr. Onders has led the effort to apply that same technology in patients with the progressive neurological disorder Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Nair, Dileep, MD

Mapping the epileptogenic zone as well as epileptic and functional brain networks is a cornerstone principle in guiding therapeutics for patients with medically intractable epilepsy. Accurate identification of these regions is necessary to achieve seizure freedom and avoiding functional deficits. We believe that mapping of these regions will be informed principally by clinical neurophysiologic data…

Nagel

Nagel, Sean, MD

In 2013, after two years in practice at the regional level I trauma hospital, MetroHealth Medical Center, I joined the Center for Neurological Restoration at the Cleveland Clinic where I now focus on the neurosurgical management of movement disorders, pain, cranial vault reconstruction, spasticity and hydrocephalus in the adult. In this role, I set the…

Moynahan, Megan, MS

As the Executive Director of the Institute for Functional Restoration, a non-profit organization within Case Western Reserve University, I work with FES Center investigators to chart the commercialization pathways for orphan market technologies that restore function. In this role, I set the strategic direction for the IFR, establishing partnerships with key stakeholders within industry, foundations,…

The brain contains billions of nerve cells, or neurons, which receive and integrate signals from the environment, and which govern the body’s responses. Nervous system activity is made possible by synapses, contacts formed either between neurons or between a neuron and a target cell. Synapses are asymmetric structures in which neurotransmitter molecules are released from…
