Motor Neuroscience and Neuroimaging Research Laboratory

The mission of the Motor Neuroscience and Neuroimaging Laboratory is to contribute to a greater understanding of the neural control of movement in health and disease. The lab uses a variety of non-invasive functional and structural brain imaging techniques coupled with comprehensive behavioral measures to investigate the mechanisms contributing to motor impairment in movement disorders. A major theme of our research is understanding how the brain and motor behavior change over time in people with neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, and how this knowledge can lead to a structured approach for developing novel strategies for improving motor function.
