A group 60 podiatry, occupational therapy, and physiotherapy students from the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH) will assist pilgrims along the Route of Santiago for a period of five weeks in the towns of Astorga and Villadangos del Páramo in the province of León. This activity, included among the activities of Healthy UMH, was made possible thanks to an agreement that the UMH Vice Rector for Institutional Relations, María Teresa Pérez Vázquez, reached with the city halls of these two León towns.
Seventy-five percent of the patients with hemiplegia who have undergone tests at the Hospital of Alicante with a robotic arm or exoskeleton have managed to move it through a brain interface. Participating in this project, called Brain2Motion, are researchers from the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH), the Cajal Institute at the Spanish National Research Council of Madrid, and the Hospital of Alicante. This system is an improvement for the patients, as they are involved cognitively to carry out the movement, and they are capable of moving the affected limb voluntarily.
A study coordinated by Jorge Manzanares, Professor of Pharmacology at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH), shows that child maltreatment, whatever its form, produces functional brain changes that increase vulnerability to alcohol consumption when reaching adolescence. The results determined that the brains of some young abused people perceived the intake of substances positively and were not able to perceive the risks associated with this addictive behavior.
