"George Wittenberg"

Dr. Wittenberg is a clinician-scientist specializing in neurorehabilitation and, more specifically, recovery of motor function after stroke. He obtained his doctorate degree in Biology at the University of California, San Diego and completed medical school at the same university. Dr. Wittenberg had further clinical and research training at Washington University, St. Louis, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and KU Leuven. He has served as President of the American Society of Neurorehabilitation and remains active in that organization. In Pittsburgh, he is an investigator in the VA Geriatrics, Research, Education and Clinical Center, and the Center for Neural Basis of Cognition. The central aims of Dr. Wittenberg’s research work are to understand 1. the brain mechanisms of arm control in the healthy state; 2. how arm movement is affected by neurological conditions, and 3. to develop better methods of restoring arm movement through combinations of practice and stimulation of the nervous system.
