Dr. Gillick’s research is dedicated to investigating cortical plasticity and recovery from neurologic insult in both adult and pediatric populations. Her research encompasses the use of non-invasive brain stimulation, in combination with behavioral training, for improved motor function. Current grants support investigation of the use of non-invasive brain stimulation with and without the combination of constraint-induced therapy in children with stroke and resultant hemiparesis. Neuroimaging and neuronavigation allows advanced understanding of the reorganization and structure of the brain which survived the stroke, and the influence of interventions on neurorecovery.
