Current Research Projects
  1. How the sensorimotor cortical oscillations are modulated by intensively practicing a motor task.
  2. Exploration of the relationships between the extent of activation within the sensorimotor cortices and the fidelity of fibers in the thalamocortical and corticospinal tracts.
  3. Identifying the role that genes play on the ability learn a motor task.
  4. Influence of different physical therapy treatment paradigms on the mobility, standing postural balance and neuroplasticity.
