Research areas

In the Kinesiology field you will work with diverse faculty on the current research areas contributing to the field. These include:

  • Asymmetry of hand preference as a model of chronic adaptive plasticity;
  • Barriers to full participation in physical activity;
  • Exercise induced neural adaptations;
  • Mechanisms to enhance appropriate motor learning for injury prevention and rehabilitation;
  • The reciprocal relationship between motor development and physical activity in both healthy and developmentally delayed children;
  • The role of exercise in promoting neural function; and
  • The role of the spinal cord in the production of rhythmic and non-rhythmic movements.

You will have the option of diverse research experiences in the kinesiology area ranging from intensive laboratory-based studies with human populations to interventional studies with special populations.
