Single Motor Unit Laboratory
We record electrical activity from single motor units as well as muscle during voluntary and reflex contractions in patients with neurological disorders.
Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory
We focus on executive function and social cognition, their representations in the brain, and ways to improve these functions in patients with brain damage.
MARS3: Machines Assisting Recovery from Stroke and Spinal Cord Injury for Reintegration into Society
We work toward a future where robotics for rehabilitation are used from applications in therapy to assistance in improvement of managing life after neural injury.
Center for Brain Stimulation (CBS)
The mission of CBS is to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for neurological and psychiatric disorders utilizing non-invasive brain stimulation. We also conduct studies on healthy volunteers to understand how the human brain works.
Hand Rehabilitation Lab
The primary goal our research is to develop new techniques and devices to facilitate functional use of the hand after stroke. Toward this end we are investigating the underlying sensorimotor control of the hand, the changes that occur after stroke, and the factors that influence rehabilitation.
Neuromuscular Control and Plasticity Lab
Our lab is focused on the mechanisms underlying the multijoint control of movement and posture in able-bodied individuals and in individuals with neuromotor pathologies. Specifically, we are interested in understanding the relative contributions of intrinsic muscle properties, limb geometry and neural activation in the control of whole limb function.
Brain stimulation, when combined with individual level high-resolution brain imaging, offers new possibilities to understanding and treating the human brain
Neuromodulation & Motor Control Lab
Over the last several years, we have been developing protocols to enhance the activity of residual sensorimotor pathways in individuals who suffered from spinal cord injury (SCI). We are happy to communicate that we are starting Phase IV of our protocol and we are actively enrolling participants. Led by P.I. Monica Perez
Neurorehabilitation and Neural Engineering Laboratory
At the Neurorehabilitation and Neural Engineering Laboratory, the goal of our research is to develop improved intervention strategies for gait rehabilitation. Led by P.I. Dr. Jose Pons PhD.
