About the Event

This advanced specialization and rehabilitation course is based on the current view of neurosciences and neuroplasticity, neurology and imaging, with direct integration with nutrition, physical exercise and neuropsychology.


Through the acquisition of multidisciplinary knowledge the student is allowed to achieve a better understanding of the mechanisms of rehabilitation and recovery, as well as of the factors potentially influencing the cause of pathologies


Knowledge is gathered in the light of the most recent scientific research which, integrated, allows the improvement of human experience, enhances rehabilitation and can play an important role in the recovery of pathological processes. This course is certified by the Piaget Institute (Portugal), Shiraz University of Medical Sciences (Iran), Iranian Society of Neuroscience and DANA - Brain Health Institute.
