Neural Control of Movement
Our goal is to understand how the human brain controls behaviour and then use these insights to develop non-invasive interfaces to modulate brain function. Our experiments investigate how the sensorimotor system controls movement, acquires new motor skills or recovers from brain damage and degeneration. To do so we use cutting-edge imaging and brain stimulation methods including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electroencephalography (EEG), and transcranial magnetic and electric stimulation. Recently, we adopted a bedside-to-bench approach to investigate how MRI can be used to bridge the translational gap between genetics and systems neuroscience, and between preclinical animal models and the human brain.
