Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory
We focus on executive function and social cognition, their representations in the human 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.
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.
Center for Aphasia Research & Treatment
The Center for Aphasia Research & Treatment was created in 2001 to respond to the challenge of living with aphasia.
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.
Center for Bionic Medicine
Our goal is to improve the function and quality of life for individuals with limb loss and other physical impairments.
Mobile smartphones are essentially a highly functional wearable sensor. Individuals with stroke carry a smartphone while going about their daily lives to tell us about their behavior.
This study evaluates a new rehabilitation approach for stroke survivors in the chronic phase of recovery in which the combination of drug therapy (cyproheptadine) and active movement practice (AMP) is used to encourage increased voluntary muscle control and strength.
Heather experience every now mother's nightmare: a sudden stroke after the birth of her new child. However, with the AbilityLab's help and support of her family, she can now keep up with her son.
The purpose of this study is to investigate a new use of an allergy medicine,to reduce spasticity and muscle hyperexcitability and to evaluate the effectiveness of a new therapy using active practice of your arm and hand compared to passive stretching.
