Lab Statement

Our overall research program focuses on predicting and enhancing motor and cognitive function in the context of neurological disorders, with a particular focus on geriatrics. Methods include transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), magnetic resonance imaging, neuropsychological testing, behavioural performance evaluation, and rehabilitative therapies.
