What are the mirror neurons and in what part of the brain are they located? How Mirror Neurons and Motility Rehabilitation are related? What is cerebral plasticity and how does it affect post-traumatic recovery? What is the Mirror Neurons Activation Process? What is the difference between Action Observation Treatment and Motor Imagery?
Mêlant neuro-physique et jeux vidéo, un dispositif de rééducation ludique est expérimenté par une équipe de chercheurs italiens à destination des enfants ayant subi un AVC lorsqu’ils étaient nouveau-nés. Un projet Microsoft qui pourrait déboucher sur d’autres applications liées à l’apprentissage. Les présentations, avec ZDNet.
FightTheStroke is the social enterprise of Francesca Fedeli and Roberto D’Angelo, and Mirrorable is one of the key projects they are working on, together with the National Institute of Research in Neuroscience and Brainprize Winner Prof. Giacomo Rizzolatti.
This article describes a revolutionary rehabilitation therapy utilized with children suffering from consequences of stroke at young age. The therapy was developed within a framework that involves both children and their families and is supported by Mirrorable, a proprietary technological solution.

When he was 10 days old, my colleague’s son, Mario, was diagnosed as having suffered a perinatal stroke that left him unable to control the left side of his body. Mario’s parents explored the science of mirror neurons for his treatment. Mirror neurons create a neurological basis for empathy, triggered when video of a repeatable, familiar movement is shown to any person.
