Inside the Ashton Graybiel Spatial Orientation Lab

Janna Kaplan gives State Rep. Kay Khan a tour

Massachusetts State Representative Kay Khan, along with her interns and staff, recently toured Brandeis University's Ashton Graybiel Spatial Orientation Laboratory. Since 1982 researchers have been studying the effects varying force environments have on the neural control of movement, posture and perceived orientation of the human body.

Research projects are conducted on solid ground and in the air within weightless environments. BrandeisNOW took the tour along with the visitors for a better understanding of how this unique lab operates.
