The research in the Lifespan Motor Neuroscience Lab adopts the motor system as a model to investigate the neuroplasticity underlying learning and memory processes across the human lifespan, with emphases on childhood and older adulthood. This work utilizes multiple motor learning paradigms as well as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to assess learning-dependent neuroplasticity. The role of diurnal and nocturnal sleep in learning and memory processes is quantified with polysomnography (PSG). Our lab is also interested in the development and utilization of tools, such as non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS), in order to modulate plasticity and ultimately behavior.
