The cerebellum, one of the essential parts of the brain for motor control.

Motor Behavior (the control, learning, and development of human movement) was the primary focus of my Master's degree. My research interests include neuromotor exercise, motor coordination and balance, and movement dysfunction. 

I am especially interested in motor control implications with older adults in the field of "gerokinesioloy."
