Nelson, Aimee BW


Aimee Nelson is an Associate Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Sensorimotor Control. The purpose of Aimee's research is to develop a fundamental understanding of the cortical control of the human hand and upper limb. She leads the Neurophysiology and Imaging Lab under the Department of Kinesiology. Multiple cortical areas receive and process somatosensory input, yet little is known about the role of these areas in the control of human hand movement. Her research program is primarily focused on investigating the role of somatosensory loci in the control of hand movement in healthy and clinical populations, such as individuals with spinal cord injury.
