Gain valuable insights into cutting-edge therapies and strategies that offer hope and empowerment to individuals facing neurological challenges. 

The Other Half of the Brain: White Matter Matters!

Dr Cassandra Sampaio (Lecturer, University of Glasgow)
Sure, your brain cortex is impressive, but let's give credit where it's due: white matter is essential too.
White matter is the brain's superhighway and it occupies half of the human brain!
It is crucial for all kinds of tasks, from thinking to moving. Plus, it exhibits plasticity, allowing for adaptation and learning throughout our life.

Boosting Stroke Recovery with Technology Enriched Rehabilitation Gyms

Dr Andy Kerr (Senior Lecturer, University of Strathclyde)
One in four people will have a stroke in their lifetime with the majority of survivors left with disability. But there's hope! The brain has the capacity to recover function by rewiring the estimated 100 trillion connections between brain cells. This process is improved with rehabilitation that is intensive and stimulating. Unfortunately, not everyone who needs this type of rehab can get it due to limitations in our healthcare systems. Our research group are co-creating a new approach to rehabilitation, integrating technology like virtual reality and robotics in a user led way. This can be seen in our technology enriched rehabilitation gyms at Strathclyde University and NHS Lanarkshire.

Securing Independence: Radar and AI Transforming Elderly Care at Home

Alistair Cooper (PhD Student, University of Glasgow)
Imagine the ability to detect falls and analyse movements for the elderly at home, without the need for invasive sensors or cameras. With this, we can maintain privacy and dignity, while prioritising safety and general wellbeing. My research is focused on making this reality through the combination of radar technology and advanced AI techniques. Harnessing the power of radar and AI, we aim to revolutionise fall detection and rehabilitation in home environments. Join me in shaping a future where every step is a step toward independence and safety.
