John Rothwell University College London, UK

John Rothwell is currently Professor of Human Neurophysiology at UCL Institute of Neurology and an Honorary Professor at the University of Adelaide. His main interests are in the pathophysiology of human Movement Disorders and in basic mechanisms of restoration of function after brain injury, particularly stroke. Current research projects include using neurophysiological techniques to study the mechanisms of neural plasticity that underpin motor learning, and using this knowledge to devise new therapeutic interventions for rehabilitation after stroke.
