Our results support the need to explore the relationships among exercise training, cognition, and functional and structural changes in the brain.


Areas of Focus

Brian Sandroff, PhD, directs the Exercise Neurorehabilitation Research Laboratory, part of the Center for Neuropsychology and Neuroscience Research at Kessler Foundation. Lab research is dedicated to developing and testing exercise training programs to improve the physical, cognitive, and brain health of people who have multiple sclerosis (MS). Research involves clinical trials to study the effects of physical activity and exercise training on cognitive performance, neuroimaging outcomes, and functional outcomes in people with MS. Lab researchers focus on systematically designing and optimizing exercise programs to help individuals with MS better manage their cognitive and mobility disabilities. The long-term goal is to deliver these programs in the community.


Current Funding Support

Research is funded by National Institutes of Health and Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
