We are a research lab that focuses on the development of motor skills in infants and children. Our goal is to better understand how early sensorimotor experiences help shape brain development and the emergence of skilled manual actions. We hope to use this information to develop novel therapies that improve health outcomes and optimize development for children with cerebral palsy.

Our studies involve typically developing children, infants born pre-term, and children with cerebral palsy. If you are interested in having your child participate in one of our studies, or if you would like more information, please contact us at demrlab@bu.edu.
