A multi-room Sensory and Motor Performance Laboratory contains equipment for quantitative sensory testing (Medoc Neurosensory Analyzer & algometers), diagnostic ultrasound imaging (GE Logiq E), dynamometry, transcranial direct stimulation, and transcranial magnetic stimulation. Programs and activities are available to mentor junior faculty in teaching pedagogy, research, and scholarship.
