Michelle Harris-Love is one of the few investigators of post-stroke recovery who focus specifically on mechanisms of motor recovery in patients with severe arm impairment. In furthering our understanding of this significant public health issue, she brings a unique and critical combination of clinical knowledge, academic training, and research experience. She is a licensed physical therapist with doctoral training in rehabilitation science with a concentration in neuromotor control, and postdoctoral training at NIH/NINDS in the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to study human neurophysiology.
