The Burke-Blythedale Restorative Neurology Program

There is an urgent need for research in pediatric neurorehabilitation, because there are few effective therapies and many children with neurological impairments. The Mission of the research program is to translate advances in basic neuroscience made at the Burke Medical Research Institute into improved treatment for children with neurological impairments at Blythedale Children's Hospital. 

The Research Program is organized around neurological impairments; Blythedale patients have a variety of impairments in movement, sensation, and cognition. 

We have targeted the following 3 programs:   

1) Hemiplegia, which is loss of arm and hand movement on one side of the body, 

Innovation within the program is driven largely through emerging technologies.

These programs are described in detail in the linked pages.
