Research Interest

The focus of my research agenda is to investigate the effects of aging and neurodegenerative conditions (Parkinson’s, Peripheral Neuropathy) to the generation multi-muscle synergies and distribution of neural commands from the central nervous system (CNS) to skeletal muscles that are responsible for the control of vertical posture. This expertise is used clinically to assess the ability of an individual to coordinate muscles to a sufficient degree to prevent falls and fall-related injuries in specific populations (elderly, Parkinson’s patients, and Native Americans suffering of peripheral polyneuropathy, survivors of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and stroke (CVAs).
