Likova Lab: Brain Plasticity, Learning & Neurorehabilitation

Lora MRI

The main areas of my research are neuroplasticity, brain mechanisms of art and learning, blindness rehabilitation through cognitive and spatiomotor training, vision deficits in TBI, and multimodal sensorimotor processing in the blind and the sighted. My lab takes an interdisciplinary approach that incorporates multiple brain imaging techniques including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional MRI (fMRI) coupled with a unique multimodal motion-capture system, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), tensor-based brain morphometry (TBM), and electroencephalography (EEG).
