Hackley Steve

Steve Hackley’s research on motor processes includes studies of the lateralized readiness potential and the startle-blink reflex in patients with Parkinson’s disease and in healthy young and older adults. Using these two measures, selective deficits at the cortical and brainstem levels are investigated using paradigms adapted from cognitive psychology. In particular, our most recent research on Parkinson’s disease focuses on deficits in response selection (assessed with the Eriksen flanker task) and impaired response preparation in a forewarned reaction time task.
