Pediatric Movement and Physical Activity Lab – Melissa Pangelinan, Ph.D.

<Kinesiology Labs

The Pediatric Movement and Physical Activity Lab uses state-of-the-art brain and body imaging, as well as neurocognitive and movement assessments, to determine how movement ability and physical activity participation affect brain and motor development across the lifespan in individuals with and without developmental disabilities. Melissa Pangelinan, Ph.D., is the director of the Pediatric Movement and Physical Activity Lab. The goal of this research is to develop age-appropriate interventions that will promote motor competence and physical activity participation, which will in turn impact the long-term development of brain and physical health in those with and without movement difficulties.
