San Diego— Scientists are finding potential therapies for chronic neurological disorders such as stroke and retinal degeneration by harnessing new technologies and a burgeoning understanding of human neurology.
Despite advances in neuroscience, cures for many chronic neurological conditions have proven elusive, leading scientists and clinicians to focus on potential rehabilitative therapies. To achieve this, many researchers are working to harness emerging electronic, computer, and molecular technologies to more specifically target the underlying genetic, molecular, and physiological deficits experienced by patients.
