Michael Borich

DPT, PhD

Dr. Michael Borich is an assistant professor in the Division of Physical Therapy, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine in the Emory University School of Medicine. He has a secondary appointment in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, a joint Emory/Georgia Tech department, and also in the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience at Georgia Tech. Dr. Borich is keenly interested in understanding and harnessing the plastic capacity of the human nervous system in health and disease in an effort to improve rehabilitation outcomes for individuals with neurologic injury and disease.

He received both his bachelor's degree in physiology and his doctor of physical therapy from the University of Minnesota. After finishing his PhD training in rehabilitation science and neuroscience at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Borich completed a postdoctoral research training using neurostimulation and neuroimaging techniques to elucidate biomarkers of recovery after stroke and mild traumatic brain injury at the University of British Columbia. He joined the Division of Physical Therapy at Emory in 2014. His previous clinical experience centers on rehabilitation from acute neurologic insult and major multiple trauma.

Dr. Borich currently directs the Neural Plasticity Research Lab at Emory, a trans-disciplinary research and training environment generously supported by multiple funding agencies. His research team utilizes multimodal neuroimaging and neurostimulation techniques to characterize and modulate the structural and functional neuroplastic correlates of learning and recovery of function following neurologic insult.

Neuroimaging and Stimulation for Rehabilitation Part 1: Brain Imaging

Presented by Michael Borich, DPT, PhD

Neuroimaging and Stimulation for Rehabilitation Part 1: Brain Imaging

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

This course will highlight our current understanding of how advanced brain imaging methods are changing our understanding of how the brain works in both heath and disease. The course will first provide an introduction into current brain imaging methods used both clinically and in research. Next, the ability to characterize brain structure and function will be discussed. Finally, how these techniques are used to evaluate neuroplastic capacity of the brain will be summarized and the relevance to rehabilitation will be highlighted.

Neuroimaging and Stimulation for Rehabilitation Part 2: Clinical Application

Presented by Michael Borich, DPT, PhD

Neuroimaging and Stimulation for Rehabilitation Part 2: Clinical Application

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

This course will focus on how advanced brain imaging can inform our understanding of the behavioral manifestations of changes in brain structure and function in neurologic conditions. Using two examples: stroke and concussion, common changes in brain structure and function thought to be associated with cognitive and motor impairments will be described. Finally, how the clinician can exploit the information provided by human brain imaging to improve patient outcomes will be discussed.
