My current research interest is in the evaluation of forelimb function as a measure of corticospinal function. Specifically, we are developing a behavior-testing device that isolates and measures supination in rats. This device needs to show sensitivity to functional changes in rats after induced corticospinal injury or inactivation. Aside from training animals on this task, I’m developing software to analyze the data produced by the knob task. I’m also working with engineering students from CCNY to design and develop a device that trains supination in children with Cerebral Palsy. I work predominantly with Anil Sindhurakar, Ph.D. and Thelma Bethea, B.S.
