Neurorehabilitation of digestive physiology

The objectives of this program are:

  • Apply survey techniques for gastrointestinal pathophysiology pathophysiological substrates of swallowing disorders and intestinal transit derivative of SCI and episodes of acquired brain injury and identify new therapeutic strategies.

  • Apply monitoring by electromyography and kinematic record of swallowing and digestive process, from intestinal manometry for studying the pathophysiological basis of the disorder and those aspects, the modification of which correlates with clinical improvement.

  • To evaluate the usefulness of new treatments such as SARS, feedback (biofeedback) or mechanical stimulation to promote the reintegration of the altered functions and allow a more physiological defecation.
