Bimal Lakhani completed his BSc in Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo and his MSc and PhD degrees at the University of Toronto in the Department of Rehabilitation Science. His graduate work investigated the central nervous system mechanisms involved in the generation of rapid corrective balance recovery movements, which are typically impaired following stroke. Despite the increased likelihood of survival following stroke, the functional deficits suffered by stroke survivors are numerous. In the Brain Behaviour Lab at UBC, Bimal is interested in utilizing novel imaging techniques in order to investigate the mechanisms associated with learning-dependent changes of white matter in the stroke affected central nervous system. Bimal’s research interests are focused on improving the overall quality of life of stroke survivors by understanding the specific mechanisms that result in mobility and motor control limitations and by developing novel rehabilitation strategies that target those limitations.
