The principal aims of the Neuralplasticity Laboratory are to better understand the cortical control of human movement and to develop movement- and stimulation-induced techniques for enhancing motor system plasticity. To meet these aims our research brings together the sciences of human neurophysiology and human movement. We are currently developing an understanding of the cortical mechanisms driving abnormal upper limb muscle synergies following stroke; whether high frequency repetitive magnetic stimulation of stroke survivors’ motor cortex enhances hand function; and we are assessing three different techniques of cortical stimulation as candidate adjuvants to walking re-training following stroke.
