Our research

Lab team performing transcranial magnetic stimulation

The Sensorimotor Integration and Neuroadaptive Plasticity (SINAPs) Lab is focused on clinical neuroscience research. Our team investigates multiple facets of neuroscience through the use of neuroimaging technology, including single- and paired-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulators and electroencephalography.

Our lab's goal is to gain knowledge on the mechanisms which allow the brain to adapt following exposure to novel movements or physical activity. Understanding these mechanisms could help in the development for training and rehabilitative programs which work to maximize the priming effects of the brain when it comes to learning and performance.

Data from transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), electroencephalography (EEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as well as kinematics, are analyzed to give us a better understanding of how sensory and motor systems communicate with one another, allowing us to optimally function from day to day or during recovery from injury.
