Sheri Bunyan

Sheri is studying dual cognitive-motor task performance in people with multiple sclerosis in the laboratory of Alexander Ng. Successful performance of many everyday tasks requires that people simultaneously think, move, and maintain balance. People with multiple sclerosis experience a vast array of symptoms that can include cognitive difficulties and problems with motor control. The research in Dr. Ng’s lab sheds light on the mechanisms that underlie steady, low-force muscle contractions and how force steadiness changes when a thinking task is added. Furthermore, the Ng laboratory examines how these mechanisms may be impaired in people with multiple sclerosis. Understanding these mechanisms has the potential to result in better approaches to rehabilitation of movement and cognitive impairments in this clinical population.
