Stefan Delmas is a PhD student in department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology at University of Florida. His broad research interest is the identification of neuromuscular mechanisms that underlie human motor performance with the goal to develop rehabilitation strategies to exploit and improve individual’s motor capabilities. Specifically, he is interested in understanding reaction time as a tool to examine underlying motor-cognitive processes. Previously, his work has used reaction time as a way to understand the motor planning process. His future work will build on this idea in the context of older adults with and without cognitive declines. He will use various reaction time models to breakdown the underlying motor-cognitive processes (i.e. motor planning, decision-making, visual processing, etc.) during reaction time and explain why some older adults react slow, whereas others react equally fast as young adults.
