Anna Lynch has been awarded a School of Public Health undergraduate research grant to support her work in the lab on sensorimotor interactions. Congratulations, Anna!
Hannah Block was featured in the Center of Excellence for Women in Technology (CEWiT) October spotlight.She gave a "lightning talk" in the October faculty/PhD salon, which you can view on YouTube.
We will be presenting 3 posters this year.
Owen, S.M., Hoseini, N., Frey, G., Block, H.J. (2015). Anodal and cathodal tDCS as a therapy for fine motor skill impairment in Autism Spectrum Disorder. Abstract for poster presentation: Society for Neuroscience, Chicago IL.
Liu, Y., Sexton, B.M., Celnik, P., Block, H.J. (2015). tDCS over somatosensory cortex alters the balance of visuoproprioceptive weighting and realignment. Abstract for poster presentation: Society for Neuroscience, Chicago IL.
Munoz, L.F., Lynch, A.K., Block, H.J. (2015). Effect of visuo-proprioceptive realignment on motor cortex excitability. Abstract for poster presentation: Society for Neuroscience, Chicago IL.
Anna Lynch will be presenting the following poster:
Munoz, L.F., Lynch, A.K., Block, H.J. (2015). Effect of visuo-proprioceptive realignment on motor cortex excitability. Abstract for poster presentation: Program in Neuroscience 50th Anniversary poster session, Sept. 18 2015, Bloomington Indiana.
Adaptive staircase measurement of proprioception, by Hoseini et. al., just came out in PLOS ONE. This project was a group effort for our lab, and we are so pleased to see it appear.
10am, PH 125 - Najmeh Hoseini successfully defended her PhD dissertation, titled: THE EFFECT OF MOTOR POINT ASSOCIATIVE STIMULATION (MPAS) AND TRANSCRANIAL DIRECT CURRENT STIMULATION (TDCS) ON MANUAL DEXTERITY AND SENSORIMOTOR NEUROPHYSIOLOGY. Congratulations, Dr. Hoseini!
The Sensorimotor Lab congratulates Najmeh Hoseini, who will receive her PhD hood in this ceremony, and Brandon Sexton, who will graduate with a BS in Exercise Science the following day in the undergraduate ceremony. We are so proud of our graduates!
Anna Lynch will present a poster titled "How changes in sensory areas of the brain affect motor areas." Come out and see some great posters, and have ice cream afterwards! This event is in the Georgian room at the IMU, 2-5pm.
This lab meeting consists of the Kinesiology department labs that do movement research. We will meet every other Wednesday at 1:30pm in the Doster classroom, SPH. Anyone is welcome to attend.
