- Supraspinal control of human locomotion and interlimb symmetry between legs.
- Motor learning, especially mechanisms of adaptation, use-dependent plasticity and retention of learned movements.
- Understanding how motor control and motor learning are impaired following stroke
- Non-invasive brain stimulation, including TMS and tDCS, to measure and modulate brain excitability in the healthy and stroke-affected brain.
