      Dr. Liew’s research focuses on mechanisms of neural plasticity in healthy individuals and individuals after neurological injury in order to improve their quality of life and engagement in meaningful activities. She directs the Neural Plastiticity and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory, whose goals are: 1) to characterize processes of neural plasticity during learning and rehabilitation using neuroimaging and cortical physiology, 2) to enhance neural plasticity and neurorehabilitation through novel techniques, such as noninvasive brain stimulation and brain computer interfaecs, and 3) to personalize the use of plasticity-inducing paradigms in order to capitalize on each individual’s unique learning or recovery potential.
