Principal Investigator

The Clinical Motor Physiology Laboratory (CMPL) is the only clinical research facility of its kind in the New York region, and has evaluated and treated thousands of patients with movement and neuromuscular disorders since 1988. The CMPL is located on the 11th floor of the Neurological Institute of New York at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center in upper Manhattan. As part of both the Movement Disorder and Neurophysiology divisions in the Department of Neurology, the CMPL specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease and related conditions, tremors, dystonia, including musician’s dystonia, and muscle spasms such as from cerebral palsy or stroke.

The main functions of the Clinical Motor Physiology Laboratory are to:

  1. Quantify clinical problems, assist in early or complex diagnosis, and measure changes after medical, surgical or other therapy.
  2.  Study normal and abnormal mechanisms of motor control in the central and peripheral nervous systems.
  3. Treat unwanted muscle spasms with botulinum toxin injections, particularly writer’s cramp and musician’s dystonia.
  4. Perform intra-operative mapping, and pre- and post-operative objective testing for patients undergoing deep brain stimulation surgery (DBS implantation).                       

Bienvenido al Laboratorio de Neurofisiología Motora Clínica

El Laboratorio de Neurofisiología Motora Clínica (CMPL por sus siglas en inglés) es el único laboratorio que hace este tipo de investigación de la región de Nueva York. Desde 1988, se han valorado y tratado a miles de pacientes con trastornos del movimiento y enfermedades neuromusculares. El CMPL está en el piso décimo primero del Neurological Institute of New York del Columbia University Irving Medical Center al norte de Manhattan. El CMPL forma parte del grupo de Trastornos del Movimiento y de Neurofisiología del Departamento de Neurología. Se especializa en el diagnóstico y tratamiento de la enfermedad de Parkinson y otros trastornos relacionados, como el temblor, la distonía, incluida la distonía del músico, y los espasmos musculares, causados por múltiples enfermedades, desde la parálisis cerebral al infarto cerebral.
