Focus of Work

Bio

My lab focuses on understanding discoordination of the upper limb after stroke, learning the involvement of brain plasticity in recovery, and developing novel neurotherapeutic training programs to enhance motor control of the upper limb even years after a stroke. Additional research interests involve pharmacological interventions that seek to alter spinal interneuronal bias.
