Short description

The research concern the organization of spinal neurones and their contribution to reflexes and voluntary movements. The projects aim towards understanding the function of neuronal circuits integrating reflex actions with centrally initiated movements and the role of feedback information to the cerebellum in order to correct errors in motor behaviour. The most recent projects concern plasticity of nerve fibres contributing to the effects of transcranial and transspinal stimulation in the recovery of motor function.
The research group uses a number of experimental approaches including electrophysiological techniques combined with imaging techniques.
