Research Techniques

The major research techniques used in the laboratory are:

Motor psychophysics:

Understanding motor control principles and strategies by recording the performance of human subjects in motor execution and motor learning tasks involving reaching and pointing

Motor Psychophysics

Functional Brain Imaging:

Identifying neural networks that underlie motor control by recording brain activation with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in healthy subjects and in patients with movement disorders and stroke while they perform pointing tasks
