MEET THE RESEARCHER


Amit Sethi

Amit Sethi, PhD, OTR/L, is an assistant professor in the Department of Occupational Therapy. Dr. Sethi’s research interests include how the brain controls the movement and how can we use this knowledge to develop better treatments to improve hand movement after stroke. Specifically, Dr. Sethi uses techniques to understand the neurophysiological and biomechanical mechanisms contributing to motor deficits in elderly and adults post-stroke, investigating novel neuroplasticity-based interventions to improve upper extremity movement and independence in adults post-stroke, developing novel rehabilitation technologies to improve upper extremity movement in adults post-stroke, and studying the inherent complexity of human movement utilizing the tools of non-linear dynamics.
