The Center for Neuroscience and Neurological Recovery is the research division of Methodist Rehabilitation Center established in 1998.  Its mission is to conduct human translational and clinical applications research to better understanding underlying mechanisms and development of interventions for enhancing functional restoration after spinal cord injury, brain injury, and stroke.  The research is governed by the Methodist’s Institutional Board for Protection of Human Subjects.

The dedicated research area is located on the 2nd floor of the hospital adjacent to Outpatient Clinic and consists of ~4,400 sq. ft. of adjoining space that houses three laboratories (please click to learn more about each laboratory):
