« Use it or lose it»Neuroscience proverb
An acute injury often results in a period of immobilization of the considered limb, which leads to drastic impairments of neural and muscular factors. The main aim of this project is to implement different training methods to counteract these deficits and assess their impact on both structural and central factors. The novelty lies in the combination of two methods: muscle stimulation and mental training. This project, by gathering two approaches from different scientific fields (neuromuscular physiology with muscle stimulation and neurosciences with mental training), hopes to maximize the effects of rehabilitation programs during limb immobilization, from the brain to the muscle.
