Chapter 19 Abbreviations

It is the goal of biomedical research to eventually translate scientific evidence into innovative techniques or clinical applications which will ultimately improve patient care. Basic science and clinical research are two core components of the biomedical research paradigm. Basic science in the field of neuroscience allows for the discovery of underlying processes related to neural injury, disease, and recovery. The limited number of effective interventions in neurorehabilitation may be partially attributable to the unsuccessful translation of basic sciences to this field.
