Sensory Motor Performance Program
The Sensory Motor Performance Program (SMPP) at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) is devoted to the study of musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and sensory disorders that are associated with abnormal control of posture and movement. Toward this aim, research is driven by the tight collaboration between a group of scientists specializing in diverse topics relevant to rehabilitation. Faculty members have appointments at Feinberg School of Medicine and McCormick School of Engineering & Applied Science, both part of Northwestern University, as well as University of Chicago and Illinois Institute of Technology.
