Dylan J. Edward's research uses established and developing technologies to understand the control of human voluntary movement and functional recovery following neurological damage. He has extensive experience using non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) as an investigative and therapeutic tool in human subjects, initially at The University of Western Australia Medical Faculty, then BIDMC/Harvard and MIT in Boston, and Burke-Cornell in New York. His lab has established normal variability in TMS data in sub-acute and chronic stroke and age matched healthy adults in order to inform intervention studies and evaluated the effect of tDCS in chronic stroke motor recovery, and demonstrated a physiologic enhancement of the affected corticospinal output to affected muscles. Edward's has experience with resolving associated practical and technical challenges collecting data in stroke in patients trained a number of clinicians and researchers in the use of TMS and tDCS in clinical studies.
