Our research team is comprised of scientists, engineers, physicians, technicians, and physical therapists who work together to understand how the nervous system works during human locomotion. We focus on retraining the nervous system to facilitate the recovery of standing and stepping in individuals with spinal cord injury. Our studies investigate not only physiological characteristics that enable retraining of the nervous system to stand and walk (i.e. neuroplasticity and modulation of reflexes); they also examine a number of issues secondary to spinal cord injury including clonus, muscle and bone atrophy, decreased cardiovascular function and respiratory muscle weakness.
