Bio
Sébastien Mateo has obtained his graduation in sport sciences (2005) and Physical Therapy (2009) and since then he is involved in neurological rehabilitation in Lyon university Hospital. During his PhD (completed in 2015, Lyon University), he analysed and reported the characteristics of the compensatory grasping strategy relying of tenodesis grasp in individuals with C6 tetraplegia (Mateo et al., 2013 and 2015a). He also investigated and evidenced the effect of using motor imagery to enhance the compensatory strategy of grasping of patients with C6 and C7 spinal cord injury (Mateo et al., 2015b and 2015c). He studied and reported that motor imagery ability in patient with tetraplegia could be improved by practice accordingly to their ability and discussed some implication for monitoring a motor imagery training (Mateo et al., 2018a et 2018b). Sébastien Mateo actually coordinates a randomised controlled trial investigating the effect of motor imagery combined with neurofeedback based on brain activity measured by electroencephalography compared to motor imagery alone or a control task (i.e., visualising geometric shapes) in patients with C6 and C7 spinal cord injury (clinicaltrial.gov NCT03190863). In parallel, he investigates the assessment of motor imagery after stroke including the use of electrodermal activity.
