Welcome to the Lab.

The primary research interests of the Baugh Lab are examining the cognitive and neuropsychological foundations of skilled movement, and deficits in such movement that can arise both from healthy again and neurological damage. Without the ability to act upon our thoughts and ideas, via interacting with our environment, our cognition would serve little purpose. Our lab examines questions related to how our brain represents and utilizes the information required to successfully interact with our surroundings. This question is of fundamental importance, bridging the gap between the brain and the outside world. To accomplish this goal, the lab utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach that includes traditional cognitive psychology methodology, as well as neuropsychological patient investigation, fMRI, EEG, EMG, and the advanced analysis of kinematic data.

 

The Lab is based in the Basic Biomedical Sciences Division of the Sanford School of Medicine at the University of South Dakota.
