The behavioral science aspect of this Program conceptualizes, initiates, and supports scientific efforts designed to advance knowledge relevant to the role of behavior of individuals with physical disabilities. A major focus of the Program is to support research that informs the development or redevelopment of emotional, cognitive, and physical attributes. The Program supports clinical studies of interventions that promote development and basic behavioral studies on factors such as plasticity. Other work focuses on identifying individuals with disabilities and measuring their abilities to investigate their effects on the individual and the family.

The rehabilitative engineering portion of this Program develops and supports the application of engineering and bioengineering principles to study the habilitation of individuals with disabilities. A major focus of the Center’s mission is to support research for developing assistive technology aimed at helping individuals with disabilities perform daily activities, and the rehabilitation engineering technologies portion of this program is the lead on such tasks.


Through its many grant mechanisms, the NCMRR supports researchers whose work advances the mission and goals of the Center. Some of this supported research is described below.
