Widening the spotlight on motor system inhibition in humans

1:00pm-2:00pm, Feb 26, 2020

Occupational Therapy Boardroom (Third floor lab #4), Koerner Pavilion, UBC Hospital
Presenter: 
Dr. Ian Greenhouse

Ian Greenhouse’s research examines how humans initiate and cancel movement. His lab combines behavioral testing with electrophysiology, neuroimaging, and brain stimulation in healthy and clinical populations. His current research explores the relationship between the inhibitory neurochemical gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and motor performance.

Dr. Greenhouse earned his BA in Psychology at Tufts University and his Ph.D. at the University of California, San Diego. He completed postdoctoral training at the University of California, Berkeley with Dr Richard Ivry. He joined the Department of Human Physiology at the University of Oregon in the Fall of 2017.
