The Cognitive Motor Neuroscience Laboratory, composed of 9 faculty members, post-docs, and graduate students, focuses on behavioral, neural, mechanical, and higher-level mechanisms underlying the selection, planning, learning, initiation, and execution of movement. Using an interdisciplinary approach, these processes are studied from infancy to the end of the lifespan, and in health and disease.
Research programs in the laboratory include adaptive sensorimotor control and integration, exercise psychophysiology, perceptual motor development, movement disorders, computational motor neuroscience, smart neuroprosthetics, and neuromechanics. Our research programs are funded by National Institute(s) of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Army Research Office (ARO), and other industrial companies. The Laboratory also has a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement in place with the Army Research Laboratory (Human Research and Engineering Directorate) located at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, Aberdeen, MD.
