My research involves the neural basis for how we learn new motor skills and how this is disrupted in degenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's disease, and Cerebellar degeneration. I use a combination of motor learning tasks, brain imaging and non-invasive brain stimulation with TMS to study the circuits underlying motor skill.
