Research Interest

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.
