Human Neurophysiology and Rehabilitation Laboratory

Ontario Tech University (University of Ontario Institute of Technology), Oshawa, Ontario
What the facility does

Research on human neurophysiology, influence of the neck on upper-limb sensorimotor integration, human movement and brain plasticity, and brain plasticity in immersive environments.

Areas of expertise

The Human Neurophysiology and Rehabilitation Laboratory is a cutting-edge research facility devoted to studying human neurophysiology and its implications pertaining to sensorimotor integration, movement, and brain plasticity. The primary focus area of the research is understanding the influence of the neck on upper-limb sensorimotor integration, exploring the relationship between human movement and brain plasticity, and investigating the effects of immersive environments on brain plasticity.

Through innovative techniques and interdisciplinary collaboration, the lab aims to contribute to the development of transformative approaches for rehabilitation and the optimization of motor function.
