Dr. Aleksandra Vuckovic
Aleksandra Vuckovic's research interests are in developing different neurorehabilitation methods to help patients with sensory-motor impairments to improve their sensory and motor functions. She is interested in Brain Computer Interface (BCI), as a new form of non-muscular channel for communication between patients and their environment, which compensates a loss of sensory-motor functions or alternatively provides strengthening or modulation of preserved neuro-muscular pathways in patients with impairments of the Central Nervous System. Aleksandra Vuckovic is in particular interested in developing and implementing patient-managed Brain Computer Interface (BCI) systems for home-based neurorehabilitation. Further areas of interest are improvements of existing rehabilitation therapies combining BCI and Functional Electrical Stimulation and exploring a correlation between the recovery and changes in the brain responses, i.e., brain plasticity. She also applies BCI for operant conditioning training of brain (neurofeedback) for treatment of Central Neuropathic pain following injuries to the Spinal Cord. Between 1992 and 2000 she worked on industrial processes control as a Chartered Engineer (Serbian Professional State Exam approved by Serbian Chamber of Commerce). She received her PhD from the Centre for Sensory-Motor Interaction, Aalborg University, Denmark in 2004, where she spent one more year as a PostDoc. Between 2005 and 2007 she worked as a senior research officer at the Brain-Computer Interface Group, Department of Computer Science, University of Essex.
