PROJECTS

We run several research projects in each of the five research areas of our laboratory: Aging, Exercise, Neuroplasticity, Neurorehabilitation and Sleep.  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 also 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.

Exercise, brain plasticity and dopamine in Parkinson’s disease

This project investigates whether, timely combined, the administration of dopaminergic drug and exercise can improve motor function in Parkinson’s Disease.

We are seeking individuals of all ages to participate in our studies. Most studies require only some hours of your time. Besides helping science move forward, your participation in our studies may help patients to recover better. We provide small honoraria to cover for parking and transportation costs.
