Dr. Horton joined the faculty in January, 2008. His research interests lie primarily in the area of skill acquisition and expert performance, both in young people and as individuals age. His most recent work has focused on older adults and the extent to which high levels of performance can be maintained into the latter stages of life.
Dr. Horton has collaborated with colleagues Nadia Azar and Chad Sutherland to develop programming consisting of adapted physical exercise (APEX) for special populations. Specific programs have been implemented for individuals with Autism, MS, and individuals recovering from Stroke.
