The Motor Learning & Neurorehabilitation Research Laboratory

The Motor Learning and Neurorehabilitation Research Laboratory conducts research that integrates areas of motor learning, motor control and neurorehabilitation.

Motor Learning and Control focuses on the behavioral, biomechanical, and neural bases of development, acquisition, and performance of functional movement skills, both in normal development and following disease or injury.

Our program specifically emphasizes applicability of motor learning and motor control principles to rehabilitation strategies for people with both children and adults neurological disorders or diseases, including cerebral palsy, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and stroke.
