Brain Awareness Week – VASCage interview series – Interview with Irini Giannopulu, Head of NeuroRehabilitation at VASCage

It’s brain awareness week, the global campaign to foster public enthusiasm and support for brain science! VASCage runs a series of interviews with some of our researchers.

-WHAT FASCINATES YOU ABOUT THE BRAIN?
The plasticity and complexity of the brain fascinates me.

-HOW DOES YOUR RESEARCH CONTRIBUTE TO A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE BRAIN?
In my research I analyse how the brain develops in real environments and how it interacts and reorganises itself after damage when immersed in artificial environments such as virtual or augmented reality and robots.

-WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE FOR PEOPLE WITH YOUR RESEARCH?
I try to enrich and improve people’s quality of life by using innovative technological tools.
