Clinical research involving most aspects of movement disorders: dystonia and tardive syndromes; clinical pharmacology; genetics of movement disorders; clinical and surgical trials of new therapies for Parkinson disease, dystonia and myoclonus; rating scales; and experimental therapeutics for movement disorders.
Clinical research on Parkinson disease, dystonia, tremor, Tourette syndrome, and other movement disorders, including trials of new pharmacological agents, and surgical approaches to Parkinson disease and other tremor.
Clinical phenomenology of movement disorders, experimental therapeutics for Parkinson disease (including transplantation techniques) and botulinum toxin therapy for dystonia.

Clinical, epidemiological, and genetic aspects of essential tremor, Parkinson disease, and Huntington disease.
Clinical drug trials for Parkinson disease. Clinical research on other parkinsonian syndromes and movement disorders.
(Clinical Motor Physiology Laboratory Website)
Areas of research include movement analysis, brainstem and spinal reflexes, botulinum toxin injections into limbs, intraoperative single unit recordings during functional neurosurgery, mathematical modeling, and artificial intelligence approaches to clinical and physiological data. Current projects include sophisticated diagnosis-oriented tremor analysis, back averaging EEG to EMG and polymyography, handwriting and spiral analysis, transcranial magnetic motor evoked responses, reaction time and movement speed analysis in patients undergoing surgery for Parkinson's disease, intraoperative monitoring during pallidotomy and diagnostic neural network paradigm development.
