Bhooma says: “I’m interested in delineating the neuronal injury necessary to cause dystonic cerebral palsy following neonatal hypoxia ischemia. As a part of this research, I’ll be characterizing the motor phenotype of a model of rodent hypoxia ischemia in the Rutkove Lab using EMG, functional analyses, and EIM.”
