Research | Current

James Stinear’s research includes the development of novel therapies that combine repetitive limb movement and non-invasive magnetic and electrical brain stimulation to induce beneficial neuroplasticity following brain injury and stroke.

He is applying these procedures to assist adults recover better postural control, leg, arm and hand function after stroke, and he is assessing a parent-administered therapy to suppress the development of movement disorders following perinatal stroke.

His research collaborations include studies being conducted in the US that examine neural adaptation to tendon transfer surgery in patients with spinal cord injury, and the use of non-invasive brain stimulation to treat aphasia.
