Lab News

  • September 2017 - The SNL was recently awarded a 3-year David Mahoney Neuroimaging Grant from the Dana Foundation to support our work investigating how the two sides of the brain communicate to control walking and balance in people with multiple sclerosis.
  • September 2017 - Dr. Fling presented recent research from the SNL in his talk "Assessing neuroplasticity via neuroimaging with magnetic resonance imaging and transcranial stimulation” at the International Symposium on Gait & Balance in Multiple Sclerosis in Portland, OR.
  • June 2017 - The SNL is excited to welcome new Doctoral student Tyler Whittier, and new Master’s students Brady Butler and Andrew Monaghan to the lab this summer!

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.
