 The Motor Control Research Lab at UIUC focuses on how the central nervous system controls movements from physiological and behavioral perspectives. We look at mobility, balance, and gait as a function of aging and impairments to investigate the following: 

  • Risk, mechanisms and prevention of falls in people with MS
  • How gait and balance are affected by MS
  • Cognitive motor interference in walking
  • Theoretical motor control
Our research participants include healthy adults of all ages, people with multiple sclerosis, people with chronic kidney disease, and people with various spinal cord injuries. 

The MCRL constantly researches how people’s everyday lives are affected by age and impairments. Because of this, we are always in need of huge variety of willing participants ranging in age from 18-75 years.
