About Dr. Kara Patterson

Dr. Patterson is a physiotherapist, an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto, and a Scientist at The KITE Research Institute at UHN.

Dr. Patterson examines walking and stroke-related impairments with a variety of clinical, behavioural and neurophysiological measures. Her ongoing work is exploring the relationship of rhythmicity of walking and the unique human ability to identify and synchronize movement to the beat in music. She is also investigating the potential for dance to improve mobility after stroke.
