Research Abstract:

The long-term goal of our research program is effective and efficient, individualized neurorehabilitation. Our primary study population is people with stroke, and the majority of our experiments examine movement and the upper extremity. Research efforts include characterizing neurobehavioral changes over the course of stroke recovery, developing new and optimizing current motor interventions, and improving clinical practice. Our interdisciplinary, interactive laboratory environment promotes collaborations within and outside the lab with scientists and clinicians, resulting in a productive, successful research program.
