Origins of Increased Motoneuron Excitability in Hemispheric Stroke

Project: Research project

Description

This subaward supports the scope of work of postdoc Taimoor Afzal. Taimoor Afzal will be asked to help develop a small machine that will quantify spasticity in stroke survivors by probing the tendon in patients with stroke related reflex disturbances. He may also be asked to help with signal analysis of electromyogram data recorded from stroke-impaired muscles.
