Bio

Dr. Krishnan's primary research interest is to develop effective and efficient rehabilitation methods for individuals with neurological and orthopedic disorders. He seeks to achieve this goal by a combination of mechanistic and interventional research approaches that facilitate the current understanding of neuromuscular function and regulation in the context of movement control and neuromuscular plasticity. Specifically, his research involves using technologies, such as robotics and noninvasive ...[Read full text]Dr. Krishnan's primary research interest is to develop effective and efficient rehabilitation methods for individuals with neurological and orthopedic disorders. He seeks to achieve this goal by a combination of mechanistic and interventional research approaches that facilitate the current understanding of neuromuscular function and regulation in the context of movement control and neuromuscular plasticity. Specifically, his research involves using technologies, such as robotics and noninvasive brain stimulation, to improve neuromuscular function in people with movement dysfunction. Neuromotor performance and recovery are evaluated using sophisticated techniques that provide detailed information on changes happening at the biomechanical (kinematic and kinetic), neurophysiological (EMG, brain plasticity, muscle physiology), and clinical levels. He studies both uninjured able-bodied subjects as well as individuals with neuromuscular dysfunctions. Specific populations of interest include subjects with Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury, Arthritis, Below Knee Amputation, Joint Replacements, Stroke and Cerebral Palsy.[Shorten text]
