Tatiana Bezdudnaya earned her PhD degreeat the Research Institute for Neurocybernetics at Rostov State University in Russia. With an initial research focus on the somatosensory (whisker) and visual systems, she gained extensive training in electrophysiology and neuroanatomy. In late 2013, she shifted her focus to respiration and neuroplasticity following cervical spinal cord injury. Her ongoing research is exploring the benefits and limitations of spontaneous neuroplastic changes at spinal and supraspinal levels after cervical spinal cord injury, and developing targeted therapeutic strategies to optimize long-term recovery.
