Dr. Bronte-Stewart's laboratory research focus is human motor control and brain pathophysiology in movement disorders. Their overall goal is to understand the role of the basal ganglia electrical activity in the pathogenesis of movement disorders. They have developed novel computerized technology to measure fine, limb and postural movement. With these we are measuring local field potentials in basal ganglia nuclei in patients with Parkinson's disease and dystonian and correlating brain signalling with motor behavior.
