Sensorimotor integration in visual perception, motor learning and rehabilitation

Our laboratory studies how we use different sources of information to aid behavior, ranging from visual perception to movement planning and updating. Specifically, we are interested in how external and internally-generated sensory information is integrated in healthy individuals, in comparison to certain disease and impaired populations (e.g., Schizophrenia and upper extremity amputees). Achieving this understanding may lead to better methods for diagnosing and treating impairments of the nervous system.
