Welcome to the Sensorimotor Performance and Rehabilitation Engineering lab.
The SPRE lab focuses on studying the role of somatosensory processing in motor control and development. We seek to better understand the development process of somatosensory function in children and how impairments and delays in sensory development affect motor development and learning. In particular, we focus on proprioceptive discrimination skills and the role these skills play in motor learning in children. A better understanding of the relationship between difficulties with proprioceptive processing and motor development will allow us to identify children who experience these difficulties before they show significant motor delays and to develop tailored interventions for them.
