Dr. Scholz received his degree in physical therapy from the University of Pennsylvania, a master's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and his PhD in Experimental Psychology from the University of Connecticut with an emphasis on motor control. He is involved in the study of basic processes underlying movement coordination and studies aimed at characterizing movement coordination in patients with motor dysfunction.
Dr. Scholz' research is directed toward understanding basic processes underlying the control and coordination of movement in healthy individuals and deficits in those processes in patients with movement dysfunction, particularly individuals with stroke. This work combines experiments designed to understand how the nervous system solves the purported motor redundancy "problem" to learn and achieve successful functional movement tasks along with modeling in collbaboration with Dr. Gregor Schöner's group. The laboratory studies the coordination of skilled upper extremity activities such as reaching, pointing and drawing tasks, postural control, and recovery of walking post-stroke using a novel approach combining robotics, functional electrical stimulation and motor learning in collaboration with Drs. Agrawal, Binder-Macleod and Higginson.
