Welcome to the Motor Control and Movement Disorders Group at the University of Illinois at Chicago! Our group is focused on developing a better understanding of the neural processes associated with human motor control in both health and disease.  We use systems neuroscience and modeling techniques that include functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), structural MRI, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), electromyography (EMG), high-density electroencephalography (EEG), eye movement and motion analysis recordings.
One of our major goals integrates research with educational endeavors.  That is, our senior scientists and postdoctoral fellows work directly with graduate, undergraduate, and high school students.  We hope this site gives you a better idea of the exciting people, projects, and opportunities available with the Motor Control and Movement Disorders Group at UIC.
