Dr. Lori Ann Vallis
Dr. Lori Ann Vallis's NSERC research program at the U of Guelph broadly examines the role of cognition in the control of locomotion, with a special interest in changes that occur in visuo-locomotor across the lifespan, from childhood to older adulthood. She is also involved in several collaborative research projects with departmental colleagues, including a study that involves individuals with Parkinson’s Disease to examine the efficacy of high-intensity interval training versus continuous moderate-intensity training in producing superior cardiorespiratory, biomechanical, neuromuscular, and clinical adaptations (funded by Parkinsons Canada).
