Research Area

Research and Teaching

How are humans able to acquire, retain, and adapt a seemingly limitless repertoire of skilled movements across the lifespan? Our lab aims to address this question and thereby shed light on fundamental principles of learning and memory in the healthy and diseased human motor system. Towards this aim, we combine theory with motor psychophysics, computational modeling, and patient testing. Our research into motor learning focuses on the control of goal-directed reaching, an ideal model system to understand interactions between cognition and action given that reaching involves high-level decision-making and low-level automatic processes.
