Neuroimaging and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory

Welcome to the Neuroimaging and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory!

Both motor (e.g., walking, strength, balance) and cognitive (e.g. thinking, memory, attention) factors interact to influence rehabilitation outcomes. The overarching goal of our lab is to develop novel rehabilitation strategies to target motor and cognitive decline in individuals with neurodegenerative diseases.

Neurodegenerative diseases affect millions of people worldwide, and occur when nerve cells in the brain or peripheral nervous system lose function over time and ultimately die. Although treatments may help relieve some of the physical or mental symptoms associated with neurodegenerative diseases, there is currently no cure or way to slow disease progression.
