About

The Movement Control Rehabilitation (MoCoRe) Lab investigates the optimization of functional rehabilitation through visually guided training and cognitive agency while performing movement tasks. Visual feedback is employed to maximize real-time performance and elicit training benefits in using assistive devices, such as prostheses and exoskeletons, and rehabilitative exercises. Currently, sense of agency is being investigated in virtual reality environments towards better design of protocols that improve grasp function.
