Motor Control and Learning Research Lab

Location:  Room 178S Forker


The broad purpose of the Motor Control and Learning Research Lab is to better understand principles of motor control and motor learning and how the brain contributes to effective movement, with a long-range goal to impact remediation, rehabilitation, and therapeutic practices. A primary focus is to study the planning and control of movement sequencing, as well as the interaction between movement and executive processing.

Lines of Research
