My research activities were continuously externally funded between 1993 and 2012. My laboratory studied neurophysiological issues related to the vertebral column and to chiropractic manipulation. My research interests include the effects of spinal manipulation on the nervous system and the effects of biomechanical and biochemical conditions in paraspinal tissues on the nervous system including primary afferents, sympathetic efferents, central neurons and muscles reflexes.
