The precise circuitry underlying the corticospinal tract and how that circuitry changes in response to stroke remains unclear. Our lab seeks to understand the functional and anatomical properties of the cells that make up the corticospinal tract and the motor cortex utilizing the techniques of electrophysiology, retrograde tracing, and immunohistochemistry.
