Research Partners:

A unique collaboration between Professor Tamar Makin, an expert on brain plasticity at the UCL Plasticity Lab, and Professor Dorothy Cowie, an expert on motor development at Durham University Psychology Department.

Despite their missing limb(s), children with limb differences develop remarkable motor skills, making use of different body parts to independently explore the world. As a group, BOLDkids are interested in how these unique motor skills and adaptations interface with brain plasticity (the brain’s ability to change and adapt to our experiences in life) as the children develop.

Since the get go Professor Dorothy Cowie and her team, have worked in partnership with Reach to recruit families to the project, run workshops and focus groups at Reach events, and so important to us, share stories at our Annual Family Weekend from the project as it evolves.
