The Neuromotor Science Research Consortium
The Neuromotor Science (NMS) Research Consortium is a state-of-the-art facility that incorporates a number of interdisciplinary research laboratories investigating a range of basic and clinical issues in human sensorimotor neuroscience.
Students collaborate with faculty and postdoctoral fellows in a common space that promotes interaction and provides a rich scientific atmosphere. State-of-the-art technology encompasses several motion-capture labs, a split belt treadmill and virtual reality immersive environments.
The NMS Research Consortium includes several labs led by or involving PT faculty.
