Adult NeuroRecovery Research

Human Locomotion Research Center

FOCUS OF WORK

Investigate physiological characteristics that enable retraining of the nervous system to perform functional tasks.

  • Studies range from understanding the plasticity of the spinal cord in humans to examining the secondary health related issues associated with spinal cord injury.
  • We focus on retraining the nervous system through activity dependent rehabilitative strategies
  • We use multiple strategies:
    • Neuromuscular electrical stimulation
    • Lumbrosacral spinal cord epidural stimulation
    • Locomotor training
  • We study
    • Muscle and bone atrophy
    • Cardiovascular function
    • Respiratory function
    • Bowel and bladder function
