Biosketch

Dr. Hanna-Pladdy's primary research interests are in age-related cognitive decline, and cognitive aspects of skilled movements in stroke and neurodegenerative disease utilizing neuropsychological, behavioral, kinematic and functional neuroimaging techniques.

Through experiments with patients with unilateral stroke, her team characterized subtypes of limb apraxia based on lesion location to elucidate the distributed modular network subserving complex movements and the bilateral nature of spatiotemporal aspects of skilled movements.
