The Pruszynski lab is trying to explain how various parts of the nervous system – from receptors in the skin and muscles to neurons in the brainstem and cerebral cortex – work in concert with the physical features of the body to generate skilled movements of the arm and hand. They expect that their work will yield better treatments for the many diseases and traumatic events that impair hand and arm function.
