Dylan Edwards, Ph.D., P.T., of the Burke Medical Research Institute was interviewed on the Australian TV program Sunday Night in an episode about stroke and stroke recovery that aired November 3. In the episode, Chris Bath, the host of Sunday Night, shares the personal story of how her family has been affected by the massive stroke her father suffered several years ago. The episode also featured stroke survivor Peter Coghlan as well as researchers, including Dr. Edwards, who are working to help stroke survivors regain function.
Dr. Edwards directs the the Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation and Motor Control Lab at BMRI, which is using brain stimulation and robotics assisted motor training to help people with brain and spinal cord injuries. "The ultimate goal is to have these people engaged in their normal every day life and have function of their limbs back again," Dr. Edwards told Sunday Night. "That's something that we're really striving hard to achieve here."
