The main areas of research in the Service of Neurorehabilitation and Neuropsychology are neuroplasticity, the auditory cortex, multisensory interactions and language.
To study these different aspects of human brain function, this research relies on several complementary techniques:
Several neurophysiological re-education software programs were developed thanks to collaboration between the Vaud Canton Haute Ecole of Engineering and Management (HEIG-VD) and the Service of Neuropsychological and Neurorehabilitation at the CHUV. The software was created with the aim of treating specific after-effects of brain damage, such as hemispatial neglect or memory disorders.
Merged under the name MERLIN (Medical Educational Research and Learning Information for Neuropsychology), these different rehabilitation modules have been set up by IT students at the HEIG-VD as part of their degree.
