About the Lab

The goal of the NeuroRehabilitation Across the Lifespan (NeuRAL Lab) is to improve arm function in children and adults with neurologic impairments. We are primarily focused on motor and sensory impairments due to a stroke, which can happen at any point across the lifespan, including before birth (often causing cerebral palsy). After a stroke, most individuals do not fully recover their arm function, creating significant challenges in daily life. Through a combination of robotics, gaze tracking, neuroimaging, and accelerometry, we strive to better understand the specific impairments individuals have in order to develop targeted interventions. Our research is multidisciplinary, spanning rehabilitation, neuroscience, and engineering. We are also committed to training the next generation of scientists and clinicians to continue advancing the field and improving patient outcomes.
