"Watch Your Step, Make a Left Turn, Don't Fall: The Cortico-Striatal Cognitive-Motor Interface"

Martin Sarter, PhD

Charles M. Butter Collegiate Professor of Psychology
Professor, Neuroscience

Martin Sarter, Ph.D., is the Charles M. Butter Collegiate Professor of Psychology and a Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Michigan. He received his Ph.D. in psychology/neurobiology from the University of Konstanz (Germany). Sarter’s research employs translational approaches to study brain systems that control attentional functions and capacities. Current projects concern the role of fast cholinergic signaling in cognition, the impact of variations in choline transporter function on cognitive abilities of animals and humans, the neuronal foundations and treatment of falls in Parkinson’s disease, and the biopsychological traits that bestow vulnerability for addiction (laboratory homepage: https://sites.lsa.umich.edu/msarter/ ).
