Neural Engineering for Prosthetics & Orthotics Lab
Our research focuses on developing neural control systems for upper and lower prosthetics.
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.
Miller Limb Lab
The primary goal of the research we do in this lab is to understand the nature of the somatosensory and motor signals within the brain that control our movements, and develop neural interfaces that directly connect the brain of a spinal cord injured patient with the outside world.
Translational Cell Therapy Lab
Studying the relationship between adult stem/progenitor cell dysfunction and age-related degeneration.
Midwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury Care System (MRSCICS)
The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab & Northwestern Memorial (known as the Midwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury Care System) has been chosen by NIDILRR as one of 14 SCI Model System Centers.
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.
Tresch Neuromechanics Lab
We study the strategies underlying the neural control of movement, examining how neural control interacts with the mechanical properties of the body.
Muscle Physiology Lab
We investigate muscle fiber and tendon properties in neurological impairments and sports-related injuries.
Brain stimulation, when combined with individual level high-resolution brain imaging, offers new possibilities to understanding and treating the human brain
Regenerative Neurorehabilitation Laboratory
This lab uses a combination of molecular, biochemical, and electrophysiological assays to study axon regeneration and motor neuron disease with a priority on human preclinical models such as iPSC-neurons.
Knowledge Translation: Exercise and Activity for Symptom Management (KTEAM)
We research implementation science methodology to study best ways to translate findings of exercise research studies into the real-world clinical & community.
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
