The MNR Laboratory consists of a tenure track faculty, a research associate, graduate students, research engineers, a clinical coordinator and undergraduate students. Our group consists of individuals from diverse backgrounds including movement neuroscience, physical therapy, psychology and biomedical engineering.
MNR Research Space
The Movement Neuroscience and Rehabilitation (MNR) lab is housed within the Human Performance Clinical Research (HPCRL) facility that includes 15,800 sq. ft. of clinical and administrative research space. The HPCRL is a designated CSU Program of Research and Scholarly Excellence. HPCRL serves as a center for interdisciplinary research, training, and outreach efforts that address the etiology, prevention, intervention, and treatment of major chronic diseases including cardiovascular and neurological disease such as stroke, dementia, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and other degenerative conditions associated with aging.
The MNR lab is approximately 6002 feet housed in Human Performance Clinical Research (HPCRL) facility. The lab includes space for data collection, computing and data processing, and student offices. There are multiple rooms that are used for data collection. 1) Functional assessment room: The room is the equipped with a high-performance, motion-enabled driving simulator, and wearable sensory technology for gait and surface electromyography recording. This room features non-slip flooring for providing safe mobility environment for older individuals. 2) Cognitive-motor testing room: This room is equipped with the computers for cognitive tests such as Useful-field of view tests as well as pen and paper based neuropsychological assessments. Further, high-quality, custom-designed motor testing equipment that have modern grounding and electrical wiring to eliminate interference from radio frequency signals are housed in this room.3) Functional rehabilitation room: This room is a fully dedicated for conducting interventions and treatment sessions for individuals with neurological impairments. 4) A clinical assessment area is available for questionnaires and any other clinical testing and has a mobile clinical cart.
