My primary research interests involve the investigation of the recovery of fine motor function and re-organization of the motor cortex following cortical injury. Using a non-human primate (NHP) model of cortical injury developed with Dr. Rosene, we are establishing the rate and pattern of recovery of fine motor function of the hand and the histopathological response of the brain to injury in this model with young and aged NHPs. Additional studies with this model include assessing the efficacy of various therapeutics to enhance the recovery of function following ischemia.

In addition, we are conducting studies with Pfizer, Inc to assess the efficacy of various pharmaceutical therapies for slowing or reversing age-related cognitive decline in non-human primates.

Finally, as part of my role as director of the MS in Forensic Anthropology I also participate in studies of the rate and process of decomposition in a cold climate using a porcine model.
