Joseph L Cheatwood, PhD

Associate Professor

About

Dr. Cheatwood's research is primarily aimed at developing a better understanding of neuroanatomical changes underlying spontaneous and induced recovery of sensory, cognitive, and motor functions after central nervous system injury (i.e. stroke).  Further, the role of non-myelin-associated pools of the growth inhibitory protein Nogo-A in limiting post-stroke neuroanatomical plasticity is a major focus of Dr. Cheatwood's research, as are other growth inhibitory molecules.
