Key Research Areas
Jane Butler (PhD) graduated in 1999 from UNSW, worked at the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, University of Miami supported by a NHMRC post-doctoral fellowship, and has returned to Australia in 2002 to continue her research at NeuRA. She has a broad interest in the control of human motoneurones in health on disease with a focus on the control of respiration.
Current studies include investigation of the behaviour of single motor units in respiratory muscles and respiratory neural control during normal breathing and in patients with respiratory disorders such as obstructive sleep apnoea, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and methods to improve respiratory function and health after spinal cord injury. She also studies the changes in the motor pathway that occur during normal movement and fatigue.
