Miscellaneous Information

Primary teaching content: Exercise psychology; Cognition; Research methods; Physical activity

Primary research interest: Prof. Sandroff has spearheaded a rigorous and systematic line of research that focuses on the effects of physical fitness, physical activity, and exercise on cognition and brain health in persons with multiple sclerosis (MS). Such a line of research is important considering that cognitive impairment is highly prevalent and disabling in those with MS. Prof. Sandroff has adopted several experimental approaches for directly informing the development of multiple well-designed and highly-promising Phase I and II randomized controlled trials. Such an approach has set the stage for another highly-promising research agenda that involves the application of systematically examining the effects of physical fitness, physical activity, and exercise on cognition/brain health in persons with other neurological disorders beyond MS that are characterized by cognitive dysfunction (i.e., stroke, Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injury).
