Dr. Behrman is an Associate Professor in the Dept of Physical Therapy, College of Public Health and Health Professions at the University of Florida and a Research Health Scientist at the VA Brain Rehabilitation Research Center, Malcom Randall VA Medical Center. She also is a co-Director of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation NeuroRecovery Network translating evidence for activity-based therapies into clinical practice. Her research targets developing "best practice" for walking recovery
after neurologic injury using principles of activity-dependent plasticity and an understanding of the neurobiology of walking.
Dr. Barbeau was part of the first group that developed the locomotor training in SCI and stroke subjects in the early 80s. He has had a significant contribution to the development of functional electrical stimulation and the drugs on the locomotor pattern in the SCI subjects.show more
