II International Symposium on Neurorehabilitation

The incidence of acquired brain injuries (ABIs) and other neurological conditions represents an increasing healthcare problem worldwide.

The complexity of these pathologies makes a multidisciplinary treatment approach necessary which takes as a starting point the important advances that are being made in information and communication technologies (ICTs), virtual reality or robotics. At the same time, neurorehabilitation can also benefit from research in more experimental (biochemical, genetics, functionals, etc.) and clinical (pharmacological, early prevention, etc.) areas. We feel that the Symposium will be an excellent meeting point for professionals and researchers that wish to establish synergies among their respective disciplines which could lead to innovative approaches, and important advances, in neurorehabilitation research.

It has now been just over two years since we organized the “I International Symposium on Neurorehabilitation: From basics to future”. In that first edition, more than 400 delegates from 30 different countries joined us to make the Symposium a success. But, most importantly, the Symposium served as a meeting point for many researchers and professionals.

The Conselleria de Sanitat, the Centro de Investigación Príncipe Felipe (Prince Felipe Research Centre) and the Fundación Instituto Valenciano de Neurorrehabilitación (FIVAN) are collaborating to organize this second edition. Basic neuroscience, clinical neurorehabilitation and neurotechnology will come together once again in 2012 with the objective of improving healthcare models and promoting the use of technology in neurorehabilitation. All of this, for the benefit of our patients. For two days, world-renowned experts will review the current state and the latest advances made in the field of Neurorehabilitation.
