Dr Michael J Grey

University of East Anglia
Reader in Rehabilitation Neuroscience

Dr Grey is a neuroscientist with interests in neuroplasticity and neurorehabilitation following acquired brain injury. He has expertise in non-invasive electrophysiology, transcranial magnetic stimulation and neuroimaging techniques to study human movement and its rehabilitation.

Dr Grey is a project lead in the NIHR Surgical Reconstruction and Microbiology Research Centre (SRMRC) acute response to traumatic injury theme, investigating the role of early neuromuscular stimulation in intensive care as a means of accerlating rehabilitation of major trauma patients. At the University of East Anglia, Dr Grey leads research investigating the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation to assess neurorehabiliation.

Stimulating Recovery

Electrical and magnetic stimulation have a long and colourful history in medicine. In this seminar I will discuss how advanced stimulation techniques can be used to effect and to assess neurorehabilation. I will show some examples where peripherally applied electrical stimulation can be used to limit muscle atrophy in critically injured patients and to promote recovery in patients with acquired brain injury. I will briefly discuss how electrical and magnetic stimulation may be applied trancranially to enhance rehabilitation and then focus on how transcranial magnetic stimulation can be used as a marker for neuroplasticity in order to assess neurorehabilitation.
