Lab Objectives

The long-term objectives of our lab's research are to:

  1. Understand how the healthy brain integrates sensorimotor information to control movement and how this control changes with advancing age.
  2. Understand the interplay of cognitive and motor function underlying neuromotor control deficits in individuals with sensorimotor dysfunction.
  3. Develop intervention strategies that promote neuroplasticity and functional motor recovery subsequent to aging and/or neural disease, with a specific emphasis on multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury and Parkinson's disease.
