Our mission is to better understand the brain-behavioral relationships that underlie human hand function, and to use this knowledge to improve rehabilitation outcomes for individuals with movement problems.
Exquisitely designed for function, our hands enable us to literally reshape our world around us. When brain or bodily injury impairs our ability to use our hands, their pivotal role in upholding our independence and quality of life is made painfully clear. Our lab is dedicated to furthering our understanding of the neuroscience of human hand function. We believe that advancing our foundational knowledge of how the brain controls the hand will guide and motivate new and improved rehabilitation interventions for individuals with sensory and movement impairments.
