In the Motor Behavior and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory, we aim to understand the neurobehavioral basis of motor learning. Specifically, we are interested in the brain-behavior relationships that are optimal for the preparation, and execution of skilled movement behaviors in healthy aging and in those recovering from hemiparetic stroke. We have worked with IMSC on Rehabilitation Engineering Research, funded through one CTSI grant (POCM project), leveraging advances in smart technologies including virtual reality applications (Kinect™ camera), and body worn sensors (APDM sensors), for rehabilitation purposes including diagnostics.
