Alessandra Del Felice is an academic clinician in the area of Neurorehabilitation. Her basic training has been as a neurologist, with a special interest in neurophysiology and neurorehabilitation, and holds a Ph.D. in Neuroscience.
Her current research area allows her to draw on her experience and skills in neurophysiology to improve methodology and outcome measures in this important area of rehabilitation, stressing the interdisciplinary nature of this research. Techniques that she masters include gait analysis, electromyography (EMG), electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), EEG-TMS co-registrations, and EEG signal analysis.
Her current research portfolio includes EEG-EMG co-registration during overground gait in healthy subjects and during exsoskleteon gait in post-stroke subjects during gait; development of rehabilitative protocols and wearable devices to reduce loss of balance in the elderly; validation of inertial sensors for gait in clinical practice; early biomarkers of recovery after stroke; recovery and long term prognostic markers after coma.
