Our speaker this month is Dr. Susan Harkema,,

Ph.D. Dr. Harkema is the newest faculty member to join the Department of Neurological Surgery and the Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center at the University of Louisville and she will be directing clinical research at Frazier Rehab Institute. This partnership has formed the Neuroscience Collaborative Center at Frazier Rehab Institute that will facilitate the translation of basic science into clinical applications.

Patients at Frazier Rehab Institute now have access to the latest in advanced rehab medicine at Frazier Rehab Institute with new strategies to retrain the nervous system after injury.

The work by Dr. Harkema and colleagues have resulted in the development of an intervention called

Locomotor Training for people with spinal cord injuries and other neurological disorders. Locomotor Training re-teaches the body to walk by providing appropriate sensory cues that can be recognized by the neural circuitry of the spinal cord. It has 3 components, which Dr. Harkema will discuss in her speech. A side benefit to this training is that patients experience better overall health and report better quality of life.
