Applied Electrophysiology Laboratory

About Us

The director of Applied Electrophysiology Laboratory is Dr. Cheng-Ya Huang. The laboratory focus on neuromotor control of motor and postural tasks in older adults and neurologic patients by electrophysiological techniques such as electromyography (EMG), electroencephalography (EEG), H reflex, event-related potential (ERP), and movement-related potential (MRP). Knowledge of movement science, electrophysiology, and signal processing are integrated to explore research issues in the fields of neuromotor control, motor learning, and motor impairments.

Those who have different academic backgrounds are welcomed to join us. We aim to develop small, clear and creative experiments to gain better insight into neural mechanisms for human movements, on which therapeutic treatments and skill improvement are based.

Current and Further Projects:

  • The effect of prioritization of attentional allocation on postural-suprapostural tasking
  • The effects of suprapostural attention focus and postural difficulty on H-reflex and brain activity: Aging and Parkinson’s disease
  • Effects of task prioritization on postural-suprapostural task and brain activity in Parkinson’s disease with different balance ability.
