Movement Recovery Laboratory
Location and Contact Information
Led by Dr. Jason Carmel, the Movement Recovery Laboratory at Columbia University Irving Medical Center's Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center investigates the nervous system circuits that enable movement in health and limit movement after injury to the central nervous system. Our projects focus on the interplay of brain and spinal cord in the control of skilled arm and hand function. We seek to understand how neural circuits are compromised by injury and to strengthen the brain and spinal connections that are spared.
We interact with the world through movement, and loss of movement compromises function and independence.
