Motor-Learning and Training Laboratory

Motor Learning and Training Laboratory

Head of Laboratory: Shellie A. Boudreau, Associate Professor (sboudreau)

Aim

The Motor Learning and Training laboratory aims to reveal novel features of motor training regimes that facilitate motor learning and control. The ability to acquire and produce novel movements is an innate feature that is rooted in our neurophysiologic underpinnings. Consideration of our neurophysiologic underpinnings or simply ‘how we are designed’ may lead to novel strategies that facilitate or new insights on mechanisms that hinder the process of motor learning.
The Motor Learning and Training laboratory incorporates sensory, motor, and cognitive-evaluative assessment techniques in order to investigate the influence specific aspects of motor training regimes have on motor learning and performance. 

Laboratory Facilities

  • Various motor - cognitive test equipment (e.g. attention, reaction time etc…)
  • Various training equipment (weight and balance boards)
  • Vibration stimulator
  • Physiologic assessments (e.g. heart rate, blood pressure)
  • Tracking systems (Kinect – in development)
  • EMG amplifiers (Surface and Intramuscular)
  • Force amplifiers
  • Force transducers
  • Hospital bed/plinths
  • Peripheral blood lactate, glucose and cholesterol, triglycerides testing-apparatus
