Research Interests

The goal of the Neuromuscular and Rehabilitation Robotics Laboratory (NeuRRo Lab) is to develop effective and efficient rehabilitation methods for individuals with neurological and orthopedic disorders. The NeuRRo Lab seeks to achieve this goal by a combination of mechanistic and interventional research approaches that facilitate our current understanding of neuromuscular function and regulation in the context of movement control and neuromuscular plasticity. Specifically, research in the NeuRRo Lab involves using technologies, such as robotics and noninvasive brain stimulation, to improve neuromuscular function in people with movement dysfunction. Neuromotor performance and recovery are evaluated using sophisticated techniques that provide detailed information on changes happening at the biomechanical (kinematic and kinetic), neurophysiological (EMG, brain plasticity, muscle physiology), and clinical levels. We study uninjured able-bodied subjects as well as individuals with neuromuscular dysfunctions. Specific populations of interest include subjects with Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury, Arthritis, Below Knee Amputation, Joint Replacements, Stroke and Cerebral Palsy.
