Canadian Institute of Health Research, Group in Sensory-Motor Systems
This Group is founded on the principle that ameliorating or eliminating motor dysfunction can only be accomplished if we understand the neural mechanisms that coordinate the activity of multiple motor systems. To accomplish the goal, we have assembled a team of investigators with unique skills in a range of sensory-motor tasks which provide the foundation for the systematic and comprehensive study of sensory-motor behaviour.
