On the way to recovery

The Vidi programme targets excellent researchers with several years of experience after their PhD. These researchers belong to the best of their respective disciplines. The Vidi programme enables them to do research for five years, which is how NWO hopes to stimulate innovation in science.

Vidi grant for Vivian Weerdesteyn - Theme Disorders of movement
Following a stroke, humans often struggle with balance and walking. This impacts their  safety and autonomy tremendously, which is a problem especially in our aging society. It is still unknown how different neural pathways contribute to the recovery of balance and walking after a stroke. Dr. Weerdesteyn and her colleagues are going to change this. They will furthermore attempt to facilitate recovery through training in order to improve functioning in daily life.
