Introduction: My name is Eva, and since November 1st I am a PhD student at Biomechatronics and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory. My research is within neuromuscular rehabilitation for chronic pain and functional motor disability. In particular, the focus of my PhD is to solve the challenges connected with the application of novel technologies developed at the lab to the treatment of Phantom Limb Pain. The long term goal of my project is to investigate the underlying neural mechanisms of Phantom Limb Pain which are not completely understood.
