Yuri Danilov


Dr. Danilov is Senior Scientist in the Orthopedics and Rehabilitation Medicine Department, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. He is a neuroscientist with over 30 years experience in research on brain function and the special senses, including vision, taste, and balance. His primary interest areas include neuroplasticity, neurorehabilitation, and sensory systems physiology. Dr. Danilov led the discovery of the balance retention effect, the development of specific training regimens, and the ongoing identification of potential clinical and non-clinical applications of neuromodulation and sensory substitution technology.
