Research Focus

Neuroplasticity in recovery of function after stroke. Preclinical models of brain and spinal cord injury.

Research Interests

Our laboratory studies neural plasticity in response to neurological injury and behavioral experience. We are interested in the underlying mechanisms of recovery after injury that can be used in the development of therapeutic interventions in treatment of stroke and brain injury.  In a second project, we are currently developing an electronic aid to bridge the damaged spinal cord to connect the brain to spinal motor neurons below the level of injury.
