Biography

Raymond Chong completed his Ph.D at the University of Oregon in 1997. He is the director of the department\s Human Movement Science lab. He is first author in >80% of his publications. His expertise and research interests are in the areas of aging, neurological diseases and fall prevention. He studies the sensorimotor mechanisms of automatic and volitional multisensory organization and postural control in humans during reaching, stance and walking in healthy and neurological conditions. He uses established and novel paradigms including surface perturbations, treadmill walking, suspended forward fall, obstacle crossing, optical prism adaptation and close-loop virtual-reality systems in his experiments. He serves in various study sections for the US Department of Veteran Affairs Rehabilitation & Research Development Service\s review panels. He is executive editor of the Journal of Novel Physiotherapies, and associate editor of the Comprehensive Psychology journal. He also serves on the editorial board of the Degenerative Neurological & Neuromuscular Disease, World Journal of Neuroscience, and Clinical Research on Foot & Ankle journals. He is a regular reviewer for the Gait & Posture journal.

Research Interest

How do we move? How are movements affected as we age? When there is a neurologic disease? When the mind is distracted? I use established and novel paradigms including surface perturbations, treadmill walking, suspended forward fall, obstacle crossing, optical prism adaptation and close-loop virtual-reality systems in my experiments. My research interests include: (1) Automatic and volitional multisensory organization and postural control in humans during reaching, stance and walking in healthy and neurological conditions such as Parkinson\'s disease; (2) Movement theories. Key words: aging attention balance balance control development EMG falls gait motion analysis kinematics motor control neuroscience Parkinson\'s disease physical therapy posture postural control public health reaching prevention proprioception rehabilitation sensory integration sensory organization somatosensory vestibular vision visuomotor walking
