Dr. Nuray Yozbatiran is an Associate Professor for Research in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth. Dr. Yozbatiran received her Ph.D degree from Dokuz Eylul University School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation in Izmir, Turkey. She was a postdoctoral fellow in Department of Neurology at University of California, Irvine and Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at McGovern Medical School.
She has been involved in clinical studies emphasizing recovery of upper-limb functions after stroke and spinal cord injury, by using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), constraint induced movement therapy (CIMT), robotic exoskeletons and used functional MRI to study mechanism of recovery (Mentor: Steven Cramer, MD at UCI). She is primarily interested in development and optimization of treatment protocols for rehabilitation of upper-limb movements in persons with stroke and spinal cord injury. Treatment modalities vary between non-invasive brain stimulation devices such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), paired Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS), robotic exoskeletons and exercises.
