 DESCRIPTION OF RESEARCH
  Research in the Neuromotor Behavior Laboratory focuses on motor control and skill learning. We study the neural and behavioral processes underlying skill acquisition. Our emphasis is on determining changes in brain structure-function relationships that occur with performance change caused by learning, external environmental changes, or internal system changes such as aging and disease. Research techniques include the use of functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging (conducted at the Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Center, North Campus) and quantitative motor assessments such as kinematic, kinetic, and electromyographic analyses. For various research projects, we test normal healthy subjects, aged individuals, and patients with Parkinson's disease.
