Neurorehabilitation Research

Teachers College, Columbia University

The late Antoinette Gentile, Professor Emerita of Movement Sciences, was a leader in movement sciences and neuromotor research who championed the revolutionary concept of "neuroplasticity," which holds that, following trauma, the brain can recover certain physical functions by switching the brain activity that governs it to new, uninjured regions. Neuroplasticity launched a new era in treating movement disorders. It underlies much of today's brain research, including the research conducted at NRL.  

In November 2016, the Motor Learning program held the Ann Gentile Memorial Conference in honor of Ann’s life and her legacy.  For more information about the conference, click here: The Ann Gentile Memorial Conference
