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.
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.
