Dr Paul Strutton BSc (Hons) PhD FHEA

Paul Strutton runs the Nick Davey lab at Imperial College’s Charing Cross Hospital campus in West London. He has been involved in exploring a range of topics relating to motor control in health and disease and the effects of pain on this control. He utilises brain stimulation techniques to investigate neural control and plasticity and correlates these with changes in function. He has more recently begun to investigate the use of non-invasive brain stimulation to modulate pain, using a model of top-down analgesic control.

Paul was recently the Principal Investigator of an INSPIRE funded project called TRUNK CONTROL exploring the interactions between limb movements and trunk control in people with incomplete spinal cord injury investigating if exercise of the limbs might improve trunk control. He is a reviewer for over 30 scientific journals and has reviewed grants for NIHR, MRC and the Wellcome Trust. He is a member of the Society for Neuroscience and the Physiological Society. He was elected to the INSPIRE National Scientific Committee in March 2018.
