Our long-term objectives.
- Understand how the healthy brain integrates sensorimotor information to control movement and how this control changes with advancing age.
- Understand the interplay of cognitive and motor function underlying neuromotor control deficits in individuals with sensorimotor dysfunction.
- Develop intervention strategies that promote neuroplasticity and functional motor recovery subsequent to aging and/or neural disease, with a specific emphasis on multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury and Parkinson’s disease.
April 2019 – SNL doctoral student Sutton Richmond was awarded the Best Doctoral Podium Presentation at the 2019 Rocky Mountain American Society of Biomechanics annual meeting. Congratulations to Sutton on a fantastic talk!
