Exercise Neuroscience Research Laboratory
The goal of our research program is to understand how the human nervous system controls powerful muscle contractions and fast movements and how this control is affected by Parkinson’s disease (PD), aging and exercise. We wish to develop the scientific basis for exercise practices to increase mechanical power and improve mobility in people with PD and older adults.
The Exercise Neuroscience Research Laboratory will not be recruiting graduate students until Fall 2022.
