Human Motor Recovery Laboratory
Stroke affects the motor system in up to 80% of patients, resulting in limitations in activities, lack of independence, and reduced quality of life. The Human Motor Recovery Laboratory studies how stroke and other neurological disorders affect the control of movements in order to develop better rehabilitative interventions for motor recovery in chronic patients.
Our goals are to 1) understand the mechanisms underlying motor deficits using detailed analysis of movements and neurophysiology, and 2) develop improved rehabilitative strategies using technologies such as robotic devices, gaming, and non-invasive brain stimulation. We also participate in multicenter clinical trials investigating treatments for stroke recovery.
