The NeuroRehabLab is an interdisciplinary research group of the University of Madeira that investigates at the intersection of technology, neuroscience and clinical practice to find novel solutions to increase the quality of life of those with special needs. We capitalize on Virtual Reality, Serious Games, and Brain-Computer Interfaces to exploit specific brain mechanisms that relate to functional recovery to approach motor and cognitive rehabilitation by means of non-invasive and low-cost technologies.


Our ongoing RCT on the use of VR in an alcoholic population in collaboration with Casa Saude Sao Joao De Deus Funchal won the 1st prize at the "IV Jornadas Hospitaleiras de Saúde Mental", and event organized by Casa De Saúde Câmara Pestana in Funchal to celebrate the 95 anniversary of presence of the Irmãs Hospitaleiras in Madeira.

Congratulations to all authors!
