Movement Neuroscience Laboratory

The mission of the lab is to advance knowledge of human neural control of movement and leverage this information to improve motor function for those with neurological impairment

Goals

1. To study the neural processes that govern perception and action in health and disease.


2. To translate principles of neuroscience into practical interventions for individuals with motor impairment.


3. To advance techniques for studying human motor neurophysiology.

Approaches

1. State of the art virtual reality and robotics to study the effects of visual and haptic feedback on motor behavior.


2. High-precision optical cameras, instrumented gloves, inertial sensors, and force sensors to study human movement biomechanics.


3. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and electromyography (EMG) to study human neurophysiology.
