Our Projects

PROJECTS

We run several research projects in each of the four research areas of our laboratory: Aging, Exercise, Neuroplasticity and Neurorehabilitation.  Some of these projects involve people without disability while other projects require the participation of people with neurological conditions such as Stroke, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.

We are currently running several rehabilitation patient training programs which can be joined by patients to improve their physical well-being. Training sessions are free and clinicians and researchers are always on site to monitor patient’s progression and to ensure their safety.

High-intensity interval training for stroke patients

High-intensity interval training for stroke patients

This project explores the role of exercise intensity on brain plasticity, cardiovascular health and motor function in people with chronic stroke.

Genotype and the response to exercise in sub-acute stroke

Genotype and the response to exercise in sub-acute stroke

This project studies whether the genotype modulates the individual response to exercise on brain plasticity and motor recovery in early stroke recovery.
