Our Lab

Veterinary physiology is the study of the organ function of various large animals and companion animals. This field of study involves the analysis of body trunk/tail movements, skeletal muscle functions, and neural control mechanisms of brain/spine, seen in the gait motion of quadrupedal animals.

Research Interests

  • The trunk neural control
