    Personal profile

    Research interests

    Dr. Philip directs the Neuroscience and Rehabilitation Laboratory, which focuses on the interaction between hand dominance, brain lateralization, and rehabilitation following unilateral impairment such as stroke, amputation, or nerve injury. He combines behavioral, neuroimaging, and neuromodulation methods to understand how the brain and body change after impairment, and how they can further change during rehabilitation. Toward this end, he is also interested in the assessment of sensory and motor function in the hand, and the cortical asymmetries that underlie handedness and hand-specific learning. By understanding the cortical asymmetries that drive performance and participation, and how this organization changes in pathological conditions, he hopes to improve rehabilitation and care for patients with unilateral impairment, especially of the dominant hand.
