Research Interests

To better understand diseases, injury, and rehabilitation-related recovery mechanisms, Dr. Saleh incorporates neuroimaging techniques to improve intervention outcomes in individuals with motor disabilities. Dr. Saleh’s research focuses on understanding the neural mechanisms of motor learning and on neuromodulation methods to re-normalize brain connectivity in individuals with motor deficits. Her most recent studies are focused on brain plasticity following exoskeleton training in incomplete spinal cord injury and robotic exoskeleton gain training during acute stroke rehabilitation.
