Human Motor Recovery Laboratory

In the Human Motor Recovery Laboratory, we are studying the control of movements after neurological injury, particularly after stroke. Our research focus is the importance of behavioral training in motor recovery, in both early and late stages of stroke.  

Our research program’s goals include:

  • To understand how stroke and other neurological diseases produce abnormal movements.
  • To develop objective measures of motor impairment and function.
  • To design improved rehabilitation strategies after stroke, incorporating pharmacological approaches and technology.
