SENSORIMOTOR LEARNING LAB
The Sensorimotor Learning Lab (a.k.a. the Lametti Lab) at Acadia University studies how adult brains learn to produce, maintain, and remember complex movements, such as limb movements and speech production. We tackle this problem using a variety of methods including behavioural manipulations, noninvasive brain stimulation, and computational modelling.
