Yadrianna’s research is in physical ergonomics and focuses in sensorimotor human performance. She is currently investigating sensory and motor deficits in stroke patients. Specially, changes in upper limb activities. The aims are to determine the degree to which sensory and motor systems functioning differ between individuals affected by stroke and healthy individuals, and to determine whether the origin of deficits are primarily sensory, motor, or from both. This knowledge will be used to develop and adapt rehabilitation procedures to facilitate/accelerate recovery.
