About Yuri Danilov

Yuri P. Danilov is a neuroscientist with over 25 years experience in research on brain function and the special senses, including vision, taste, hearing and balance. Dr. Danilov is the lead discoverer of the balance retention effect, lead development of the specific training regimens, and continues to identify potential clinical and non-clinical application of neuromodulation and sensory substitution technology. Dr. Danilov received the M.S. degree in biophysics, in 1978, from St. Petersburg University in Russia and the Ph.D. degree in neuroscience, in 1984, from the Pavlov Institute of Physiology, Russian Academy of Science. Dr. Danilov was Senior Scientist (11/00 – 12/04) and Director of Clinical Research at Wicab, Inc., where he oversaw both conceptual development for the BrainPort system as well as its clinical testing. His interest areas are neuroplasticity, neurorehabilitation, human performance, and human sensory systems.

Project Directors

Our team is led by three project directors, Kurt Kaczmarek, Mitchell Tyler and Yuri Danilov, who have a combined total of 65 years of experience in neuroscience, biomedical science, and engineering. 

Our Research

Founded in 1992, the Tactile Com­mu­nication & Neurorehabilitation Laboratory (TCNL) is located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

We are a research center that uses the experience of many different areas of science to study the theory and application of applied neuro­plasticity, the brain’s ability to re­or­ganize in response to new informa­tion, needs, and pathways.

Our research is aimed at developing solutions for sensory and motor disorder rehabilitation.
