Research in the MNL focuses on the interaction between the two hands during simultaneous movements. Current projects include

  • Force-dependent interference between hands during target-directed movements
  • EEG correlates of hand interference
  • Modulation of motor cortical excitability and inhibition during bimanual movements
  • Hand coordination in individuals with dystonia
  • We actively collaborate with the Cognitive Science Program in Psychology, the Department of Pharmacology, and the College of Engineering at MSU.
