The study includes: 

– A single visit to Movement Neuroscience and Rehabilitation Laboratory

– Performing tasks requiring hand and finger movements

– Compensation for your time

The lab, led by Assistant Professor Neha Lodha in the Department of Health and Exercise Science, is based in the Human Performance/Clinical Research Laboratory. Lodha’s lab examines how healthy adults control skilled hand movements like driving, and the impact of stroke on such movements. Lodha’s lab advances stroke research to develop effective rehabilitation interventions for movement recovery after stroke. 

If you are a healthy adult between the ages of 65 and 90, participate by contacting the lab at 970-491-7663 or mnrlab@colostate.edu. Compensation is provided for participating in the study.
