Rehab Rounds: Marc Roig Pull

Dr. Marc Roig Pull from the University of Copenhagen presents The effects of aging and disease on mobility and the acquisition of motor skills on Tuesday, June 28, 2011 from 12-1pm. This event takes place at the room 132 of the Rehabilitation Sciences Building, 500 University Avenue.

Dr. Marc Roig Pull received a PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences from the University of British Columbia, an MSc in Sports Medicine and Exercise Science from Nottingham University in the UK, and is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Copenhagen. His research interests are focused on understanding the mechanisms governing how new motor skills are learned in the elderly. He uses a wide variety of sophisticated techniques, including transcranial magnetic stimulation, functional magnetic resonance imaging and electro-encephalography, which he applies to investigate neural changes accompanying the practice of new motor skills in healthy elderly, as well as older people with cerebral palsy.
