Research Interests

Dr. Krishnamurthi’s main research interests include developing therapeutic interventions to preserve function (mobility and quality of life) in aging population and improve/restore function with neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and spinal cord injury. His interventions are mainly aimed towards taking advantage of neural plasticity in paradigms that can be effectively utilized in the clinic and/or home environment to facilitate functional recovery. He is also interested in quantitative characterization of gait and posture control impairments and cardiovascular and cardiorespiratory dysfunctions.

Dr. Krishnamurthi has received research grants from National Institutes of Health, Paralyzed Veterans of America Research Foundation, and Arizona State University-Mayo Clinic Seed Grant Program to support his investigations on the effects of polestriding and novel dance training to improve quality of life in Parkinson’s disease and electrical stimulation of legs muscles to alleviate orthostatic hypotension in spinal cord injury. He is also currently investigating the effects of certain deep brain stimulation parameters and a novel real-time feedback paradigm to improve balance and gait in Parkinson’s disease.
