Our mission is to provide a new understanding of the dynamical aspects of human movement via multidisciplinary approaches. In particular, we aim to achieve the following specific objectives:
1. Quantitatively characterize the complex behavior in healthy and abnormal movement patterns via innovative analyses.
2. Educate and train students, clinicians and basic scientists, so that they may apply concepts of human movement variability in their careers as educators and researchers.
3. Improve our understanding of basic healthy and abnormal movement patterns using an interdisciplinary approach in clinically oriented research.
4. Develop new diagnostic and prognostic tests and related biotechnology for a variety of movement disorders and aging.
We continually pursue and frequently receive grants that support our research efforts. While this funding is critical, charitable gifts from individuals, such as you, also are vital to advancing our work.
