The goals of Dr. Seidler's research are to understand how motor performance becomes more efficient and skilled as a function of practice. Investigations include work with motor-learning deficient populations such as elderly adults and Parkinson's disease patients. Functional imaging is utilized to examine the neural networks contributing to skill performance both in the early and late stages of learning.
