Neuromechanics and Neuroplasticity Lab (Cerebro). The main goal of Cerebro is to optimize sensorimotor recovery and learning in patients with neurological disorders through a better understanding of neural plasticity that underlies motor impairments, recovery and rehabilitation.
My research aims at understanding the neural mechanisms underlying movement control and learning across the lifespan and in persons with movement disorders arising from nervous system pathologies. We then use these discoveries to translate them into innovative and meaningful interventions and rehabilitation paradigms.
We are currently running studies around the following domains:
- Cognitive and multisensory integration from motor control in typically developing children, healthy adults and those with neurological disorders, primarily in Parkinson’s disease and aging with mild cognitive impairments.
- Cognitive and multisensory integration for movement control in elite humans and athletes.
- Balance and fall prevention strategies in older adults.
- Development of Mechanistic Interventions which are informed by discoveries of neural mechanisms from (1) and (2) above.
