Dr. Hui-Ting Goh is an Assistant Professor of School of Physical Therapy at Texas Woman’s University. As a Physical Therapist, her research focuses on understanding the underlying mechanisms of human movement control and harnessing these mechanisms to promote motor recovery after neurological injuries such as stroke. Her research approaches include using clinical, behavioral and neurophysiological measures to examine brain-behavioral relationship. Dr. Goh leads the Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) research in the Neurophysiology Lab. Her group uses TMS to probe the neuroplastic changes associated with brain injury and rehabilitation. The group also uses TMS to modulate cortical excitability to augment the training effects. Dr. Goh has active collaborations with the Department of Kinesiology at TWU, University of South Carolina, and UT Southwestern Medical Center. Her research group has published 18 peer-reviewed papers and presented at multiple national and international conferences.
