Biography

Andrew J. Butler received his PhD in Applied Physiology from the University of Iowa during the period of 1988-1995. Currently, he is working as Professor in the School of Nursing and Health Professions at Georgia State University. He has Administrative responsibilities as Chair of the Department of Physical Therapy and Associate Dean for Research. His research focuses primarily on how volitional movement, motor learning, and organized motor behavior are represented in the human brain. He is currently exploring the mechanisms responsible for restitution of functional capability in using an impaired limb that had previously not been used to manipulate the environment following a stroke. He is serving as an editorial member of several reputed journals like: Physiotherapy Research International, Journal Patient Preference and Adherence and Journal of Patient Intelligence & expert Reviewers for journals like: Motor Control, Experimental Brain Research, Neurology, NeuroImage, Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair. He has authored over 50 research articles and book chapters. He is a member of the Society for Neuroscience, the American Physical Therapy Association and the American Heart Association.

Research Interest

My research focuses primarily on how volitional movement, motor learning, and organized motor behavior are represented in the human brain. We are interested in evaluating the effect of constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) and accelerated skill acquisition protocols (ASAP) on cortical motor reorganization following stroke using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).This approach may provide some insight into mechanisms responsible for restitution of functional capability in using an impaired limb that had previously not been used to manipulate the environment following a stroke.
