The overarching purpose of my research is to advance knowledge of the brain's capacity for neural and vascular plasticity to improve human mobility, health, and well-being.
Brain blood flow and neural function for balance control with aging
Cortical activity during reactive balance recovery and effects of stroke
Cortico-cortical connectivity between the lesioned and nonlesioned hemisphere poststroke
Neuromodulation to enhance neuroplasticity and motor learning
Corticomotor drive and walking function poststroke
In this study we investigated the association of corticomotor excitability with clinical and biomechanical walking function after stroke.
We also tested the effects of functional electrical stimulation during gait training on cortical plasticity and associated biomechanical walking changes.
