Vera Novak, M.D. Ph.D.Novak, Vera, SAFE, autoregulation, BIDMC, neurophysiology, cerebrovascular

Associate Professor of Medicine, Director SAFE Program, Adjunct Professor of Mathematics North Carolina State University; Faculty- Center for Dynamical Biomarkers and Translational Medicine, National Central University, Taiwan Dr. Novak's interests include mechanisms of cerebrovascular regulation, imaging and biotechnologies for prevention and treatment of age-related disorders. Specialty: Neurophysiology 




Brad Manor, Ph.D.

Instructor in Medicine, Director of the Aging and Balance Control Laboratory (link). Dr. Manor studies the complex systems that control human gait and posture, and how these systems adapt to chronic impairments associated with aging and superimposed diseases such as peripheral neuropathy or stroke. He is also interested in the development of novel interventions-such as noninvasive brain stimulation, active feedback systems or Tai Chi training-that improve balance via optimization of control systems and the exploitation of their adaptive properties. Specialty: Biomechanics, Motor Control
