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.
