Dr. Arpin completed his bachelor’s degree in computer science at Creighton University, his master’s degree in biomechanics at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and his doctoral degree in neuroscience at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. His doctoral dissertation focused on motor control and sensory processing of the lower limbs of individuals with multiple sclerosis. Dr. Arpin then completed a two-year postdoctoral position at the University of Louisville’s Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center. There, his work focused on neuromuscular stimulation in individuals with spinal cord injury. His current work focuses on identifying structural and functional changes in the brain related to movement disorders.
Dr. Arpin is interested in exploring the mechanisms for voluntary and involuntary movements in individuals with movement disorders, with the goal of improving treatment strategies for these individuals.
