Question: Where do you hope all of your research will go towards if you have a major breakthrough?

  1. There are two main things that my research is directed towards:

    1. Increasing knowledge about how the brain controls our muscles. This is important because if we know more about how the brain controls muscles then we can understand what goes wrong when people get sick or injured.

    2. Understanding stroke and how to better help people who have a had a stroke. Stoke is very serious because it causes brain damage and often causes disability because it can stop people being able to move. I hope that my research will lead to some new way to help people who have had a stroke.



  1. a couple people in my life have had strokes and i can see the effects quite clearly. i hope your research helps you to “understand a stroke” as you said in part 2
