Professor Felipe Fregni, Director of The Spaulding-Labuschagne Neuromodulation Center

My name is Felipe Fregni and I’m the Director of The Spaulding-Labuschagne Neuromodulation Center.  I’m also Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and also the Department of Neurology.

I’m very pleased to have the chance to create a curriculum on Body Electric — Think Outside the Brain.

I have been fortunate to explore with Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital and the Harvard Medical School the power of neuroplasticity and the potential of noninvasive stimulation to both enhance and strengthen neural connections and networks. What is exciting today is recognizing that this plasticity extends throughout the body and that the idea of compartmentalizing of what we call the “mind” as isolated in the brain is no longer valid. Body Electric is understanding that the mind is the neural integration of the entire mass of neural connections through out our body. Body Electric truly embodies the motto Think Outside the Brain.

Over the last eight years, I have had the pleasure to share my interactive courses in neuroscience and noninvasive neuromodulation in conjunction with the Harvard Medical School to over 500 professionals and students in 40 countries.

In 2016, I will be offering an exciting curriculum in Body Electric through The Spaulding-Labuschagne Foundation.

What I find so gratifying is introducing changing paradigms in the way we look at new advances in neuroscience. The value of education is sharing knowledge, but if people don’t know how to use the knowledge, its value is diminished. The importance of sharing globally is the opportunity for so many to participate in these discoveries and bring their own value to the exploration.

 


 

Body Electric Courses:

Course I: Introduction to Body Electric
FELIPE Fregni MD, PhD, MPH

Director of The Spaulding-Labuschagne Neuromodulation Center, Harvard Medical School; Associate Professor, Department of Neurology and the Department of Rehabilitation at Harvard Medical School.

The course will introduce Body Electric as an approach to understanding the bioelectric foundation of the entire body. It will illustrate the integration of neurotechnology and neuroscience as a platform to monitor, diagnose, and treat physical and cognitive disabilities. The course will also discuss the new exploration and clinical studies in neuromodulation as an enhancement in performance and learning.

Course II: Body Electric Noninvasive Stimulation
Felipe Fregni MD, PhD, MPH

Director of The Spaulding-Labuschagne Neuromodulation Center, Harvard Medical School; Associate Professor, Department of Neurology and the Department of Rehabilitation at Harvard Medical School.

This course explores theoretically and clinically the new orientation of Body Electric in neurorehabilitation therapies, as well as in optimizing and strengthening synaptic plasticity as a basis for enhanced learning and performance in healthy individuals.
