RESEARCH & GRANTS
Dr. Galloway's research focuses on motor behaviors of infants. He is especially interested in how neural, biomechanical, behavioral and environmental influences interaction as infants learn to coordinate their early head, arm and leg behaviors for later skills such as reaching, sitting and walking.
Dr. Galloway uses standard biomechanical tools and techniques (high speed motion capture, surface EMG, and multijoint equations of motion) as well as qualitative analysis of infants and their families in natural settings such as their homes. In addition to developmental psychology, his work draws from and has implications for neurophysiology, biomechanics, evolutionary biology, neurorehabilitation and robotics.
Current projects include an ongoing series of studies on the development of object exploration with the arms and legs; shoulder and elbow coordination during the development of reaching; and learning and memory in infants at risk for coordination disorders such as cerebral palsy. Another ongoing series of studies focuses on the effect of early, intensive movement and postural training on motor development in the first months of life. His newest NIH funding (5 yr R01) is for the first comprehensive study of the relationship of advance brain imaging, motor learning and coordination in high risk preterm infants. Most recently, Dr. Galloway has begun collaborations with roboticists in mechanical engineering to development the first generation of mobility devices for special needs infants. His laboratory has also collaborated with toy producers in the development of interactive toys for young infants. Dr. Galloway's lab has been funded by NIH, the University of Delaware, toy industry, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).
Dr. Galloway also has clinical interests in the rehabilitation of adults following traumatic brain injury, and stroke.
