      About the Department

      The Motor Neurophysiology Laboratory in the Department of Neurology, directed by Scott Cooper, PhD, MD, is an NIH-funded research program that studies the extrapyramidal motor system in human subjects with an emphasis on disease states and neurosurgical therapies. The lab's focus is on the basal ganglia (BG) and on Parkinson's disease (PD) with most of the work centered on deep brain stimulation (DBS). DBS is used as a tool to understand BG physiology and, especially, PD pathophysiology; in addition, DBS therapeutic mechanisms are a major subject of investigation. The research has a strong translational slant aimed at developing improved approaches to DBS and neuromodulation.More info on the Motor Neurophysiology Laboratory is available here: The laboratory is part of the University's NIH-funded Udall Center of Excellence for Parkinson's Disease Research.
