Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Pape’s research track is neural plasticity in neurorehabilitation of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and she focuses on two areas: 1. Neurorehabilitation effectiveness, also referred to as translational research, involves translating basic science findings to advance clinical knowledge of the TBI recovery trajectory and to develop robust yet customizable interventions that effectively induce, promote, and/or shape neural plasticity of the injured brain. 2. Neurorehabilitation measurement research provides the capacity to accurately detect meaningful treatment effects in clinical trials at behavioral and neurophysiological levels.
