The broad research area of Dr. Christou’s laboratory is human movement control, with a focus on movement variability.  Although variability is a robust characteristic of our movements, it increases with aging and certain neurological diseases.  The exacerbation of movement variability has serious functional implications and thus our research attempts to: 1) better understand the neural mechanisms of movement variability; 2) characterize the functional implications of exacerbated movement variability; 3) develop innovative rehabilitation tools to reduce deleterious movement variability.
