Research Grants4

  1. Physiological and biomechanical analysis of muscle synergies in rat locomotion
    MATTHEW TRESCH; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..Based on this understanding, we can better evaluate the effects of injury in this system and can more readily develop strategies of rehabilitation and regeneration, strategies which might then be translated into clinical settings. ..
