The lab is primarily focused on understanding the sensorimotor mechanisms for motor control and learning in healthy young individuals, older adults, and patients with neurological diseases and injury. The lab is also interested in developing therapeutic strategies to improve sensorimotor function in older adults and patient populations.
We use a wide range of approaches including motion tracking, kinetic measurements, surface electromyography (muscle activity), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).
Center for Neuromotor and Biomechanics Research (CNBR)
My lab is located in the Center for Neuromotor and Biomechanics Research (CNBR), which is part of the Department of Health and Human Performance at the University of Houston.
The Center for Neuromotor and Biomechanics Research brings together interdisciplinary research teams having expertise in engineering, physiology, clinical medicine, psychology, human factors, physics, mathematics, and computer science.
