Investigating the link between brain function and skilled motor ability in healthy and clinical populations

Research in the Sensorimotor Control and Learning Lab (SCiLL) uses state-of-the-art neuroimaging and non-invasive brain stimulation tools to understand the brain-behaviour relationship.

Skilled motor actions can seem effortless. However, the ease with which we perform such actions belies the complex processes in the brain involved in the transformation of sensory information into smooth, precise movement.

Members of the SCiLL lab are focused on understanding the brain mechanisms that underpin this process and the factors that influence these brain mechanisms.   

It is our long-term goal to use this fundamental knowledge to inform evidence based rehabilitative strategies that lessen the impact of disability from acquired brain injury (e.g. concussion, stroke).
