Motor Behavior and Neurorehabilitation

  • In the Motor Behavior and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory (PI: Carolee Winstein, PhD, PT, FAPTA), we aim to understand the neurobehavioral basis of motor learning. Specifically, we are interested in the brain-behavior relationships that are optimal for the preparation, and execution of skilled movement behaviors in healthy aging and in those recovering from hemiparetic stroke. Our research program encompasses three different approaches. Each entails a different scope, set of research tools, paradigms, and outcomes, but all three share a common goal - to understand the optimal strategies for enhanced motor skill learning particularly when a part of the brain is damaged from disease or injury.

    The Motor Behavior and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory is closely associated with the Computational Neuro-Rehabilitation Lab.
