Stefanie Blain-Moraes received her doctoral degree in Biomedical Engineering and Rehabilitation Sciences from the University of Toronto, Canada. She completed two postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Michigan; the first focused on the development of brain-computer interfaces for individuals with severe disabilities, and the second studied the neural correlates of consciousness through anesthetic-induced unconsciousness. In 2016, she became an assistant professor in the School of Physical and Occupational Therapy at McGill University, Canada, where she leads the Biosignal Interaction and Personhood Technology (BIAPT) Lab. Her research focuses on developing assistive technologies to enhance the assessment of and interaction with individuals who are behaviorally unresponsive.
The Journal for the Humanities in Rehabilitation is a peer reviewed, multi-media journal using a collaborative model with rehabilitation professionals, patients and their families to gain a greater understanding of the human experience of disability through art, literature and narrative. The purpose of this interdisciplinary journal is to raise the consciousness and deepen the intellect of the humanistic relationship in the rehabilitation sciences.
The Journal of Humanities in Rehabilitation offers a mailing list with periodic updates about new articles.
