Kristine Marie Mosier, D.M.D., Ph.D.
The focus of Dr. Mosier's research is to understand how networks in the human brain are organized to plan and execute many different complex motor behaviors. Her laboratory utilizes a combination of neuroimaging (fMRI) and behavioral techniques (optical tracking, EMG, robotics) to study problems in the control of behaviors such as arm/hand movements, speech and swallowing. Application of BOLD (Blood Oxygenation Level Dependent), A.S.L (Arterial Spin Labeling) and DTI (Diffusion Tensor Imaging) together with behavioral techniques allows the examination of problems in hemodynamic and neural connectivity in motor planning and execution, the mechanisms of cortical control in motor equivalence, and motor learning and adaptation in healthy and disabled populations.
