Zehr monitoring a research subject on an elliptical machine
Neuroscientist E. Paul Zehr's research shows that high-intensity strength training could have remarkable potential for helping recover mobility after a stroke. It's the notion of cross-education of strength—training one leg strengthens both—which has potential for neurological rehabilitation as well.

The following researchers specialize in cardiovascular research:

  • Roderick Edwards: mathematical biology, neuronal and gene networks, mathematical models of neuromotor control
  • Sandra Hundza: Neural control of human movement; motor rehabilitation after injury (e.g. neurotrauma) and with disease and aging
  • E. Paul Zehr: neural control of human movement, reflexes that coordinate limbs, stroke and spinal chord injuries recovery
