Biography

Dr. Zaghloul Ahmed is a neuroscientist, skilled clinician, and contributer to a project funded through the New York State Department of Health to investigate mechanisms of spinal cord injury and to find new treatment strategies. In a recent paper, he reported a new treatment strategy in which a combination of spinal cord magnetic stimulation (TMS) with acrobatic form of exercises was applied. This treatment strategy was remarkably effective in improving functional recovery in mouse model of spinal cord injury. Dr. Zaghloul Ahmed also studies neuromuscular fatigue, axonal plasticity, and injury-induced plasticity in cortical and spinal cord connectivity. He holds a B.S. from Cairo University in Egypt, and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the Graduate Center/CUNY.

Research Interest
