Operant Conditioning Neuroplasticity and Motor Recovery Lab

Neuroplasticity and Motor Recovery Lab

The Neuroplasticity and Motor Recovery Lab is equipped with Magstim single and dual pulse transcranial magnetic stimulators and magnetic coils (figure-of-eight, double cone coils) to safely deliver single and paired-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). The system also includes a frameless stereotaxy neuronavigation software, Brainsight (Rogue Research Inc), which allows for MRI-referenced delivery of TMS, enabling us to visualize the precise site of stimulation in the brain. The lab also features equipment capable of collecting spinal cord physiology and electromyographic data that is used for operant conditioning of spinal reflexes.

Operant Conditioning in this lab is lead by Dr. Jing Nong Liang of University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
