School of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences
Dr. Raymond Reynolds has a wide range of interests within the field of human motor control. This includes sensori-motor control of balance, reaching and tremor. His research employs sensory perturbation techniques to understand the role of proprioceptive, vestibular and tactile information in maintaining upright balance.
After completing a PhD investigating postural adaption, Dr. Reynolds spent 4 years at the Institute of Neurology with Professor Brian Day examining sensory guidance of limb trajectory. He then joined the department of Sport, Exercise and Rehabiliation Sciences at the University of Birmingham where he currently delivers a third year module entitled "Techniques in Neuroscience". This covers a range of methods including brian imaging and neural stimulation. He also contributes to a second year course; "Sensation and Movement", in addition to delivering a motor control lab, and providing a one day Masterclass for the BBSRC MIBTP programme. Dr. Reynold's research is supported by the BBSRC.
