Welcome to Neurorehabilitation Research Laboratory!

The Neurorehabilitation Research Laboratory (NRL) conducts research on assessments and interventions for individuals with neurological diseases and disorders, including Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, and stroke. The lab also engages in research investigating motor control and motor learning processes in both healthy individuals and those with neurological diseases and disorders. Our broad aim is to develop effective interventions to improve functional abilities and quality of life for people with motor control impairments through physical therapy and exercise-based interventions.
