Cheryl Carrico is part-time faculty in the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy.  She is currently a doctoral student at the University of Kentucky in the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences.   Her current research focuses on optimizing meditation for use in the clinical setting.  Past and ongoing projects include a qualitative study on the experience of meditation after stroke (dissemination phase); and a quantitative study to determine whether mantra meditation may improve chronically impaired attention after stroke (data collection phase).  Ms. Carrico also works as part of a multidisciplinary neurorehabilitation research program at the University of Kentucky. The programmatic mission is to discover and refine interventions to enhance recovery of movement function after stroke or spinal cord injury.  Studied interventions include neuromodulation and intensive task-oriented motor training.
