Wei-en Wang completed her training as a certified occupational therapist at the National Taiwan University in 2012. She went on to complete a master’s degree of behavioral science in Taiwan in 2014. Her masters work focused on examining the treatment efficacy of innovative neurorehabilitation approaches for upper extremity function in stroke patients, such as robot-assisted training, bilateral priming and functional task practice. She has presented her work at the International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (ISPRM 2015) in Germany where she awarded the 2nd Prize for the E-Poster Presentation.
Wei-en’s research currently focuses on investigating the brain mechanisms underlying motor-evoked pain and its association with motor behavior in patients with chronic pain. Electrophysiological techniques (EMG, EEG) and brain imaging (MRI, fMRI, diffusion MRI) are the primary tools used to unravel the mysteries of perceiving pain and how it affects force production.
