Singh Lab

Motor and Cognitive Control Laboratory

About us

Welcome to the Motor and Cognitive Control Laboratory, a dynamic research facility that was founded in March 2020 at the esteemed University of South Dakota. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Arun Singh, the lab is dedicated to unraveling the intricate workings of motor and cognitive control. We appreciate your visit and look forward to sharing our groundbreaking discoveries and advancements with you.

In March 2023, we proudly inaugurated our latest addition to the Sioux Falls campus—an innovative laboratory that represents a significant stride in our research capabilities. The state-of-the-art SF lab is equipped with cutting-edge technologies, including wireless EEG, fNIRS, tES, and Opal sensors, which enable us to explore the frontiers of scientific discovery like never before.

We are affiliated with the Division of Basic Biomedical Sciences as well as the Department of Neuroscience, Sanford School of Medicine, USD. The Singh lab studies the motor and cognitive control networks in Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders. We also use brain stimulation methods that can excite or inhibit brain activity to normalize abnormalities.

January 2023: The Singh Lab has been awarded generous support from the Seed for Success Foundation to embark on a pioneering research initiative focused on studying gait dysfunction in Parkinson's disease (PD). This crucial funding will enable us to delve deeper into understanding the complexities of this debilitating condition and develop innovative strategies to improve the lives of individuals affected by PD. We are immensely grateful to the Seed for Success Foundation for their visionary investment in our mission.

December 2022: In a remarkable achievement, the Singh Lab has published a total of 7 peer-reviewed papers throughout the year 2022. These groundbreaking publications reflect the unwavering dedication and exceptional research conducted by our team. By contributing to the scientific community's knowledge base, we strive to push the boundaries of understanding in our field and make meaningful advancements that positively impact the lives of individuals worldwide. We are immensely proud of our team's accomplishments and look forward to continuing our pursuit of scientific excellence.
