Neuroscience

Research in the Sensorimotor Neuroscience Lab examines how sensory information (visual, vestibular, and somatosensory) is used to control movement. This includes aspects of motor learning and adaptation, multisensory integration, and the spatiotemporal coupling of eye and limb movements. In particular, our research focuses on understanding how the nervous system integrates and uses visual input to control and to adapt walking in healthy and visually impaired individuals.

Led by renowned neuroscientist and SFU professor, Ryan D’Arcy, the NeuroTech Lab is the latest asset of Surrey’s Innovation Boulevard — a high-tech health corridor occupying one square mile of Surrey's City Centre between SFU’s Surrey campus and Surrey Memorial Hospital. The city plans to create a network of health institutions here and a talented community of clinicians, academics and researchers.
