Other Lab Projects


In addition to the identified research themes, we have conducted several neuroimaging and behavioral studies that explored what could be termed 'motor cognition' and other more cognitive systems.  Most of these research lines  are not currently active. 

Key research areas:

  • Motor sequence learning
  • Transitive inference
  • Motor attention
  • Experimental design for MRI physics experiments
