About Lindsey Sydnor


Research Assistant, Department of Biomedical Engineering & Mechanics


Lindsey Sydnor is about to enter her fourth year as an undergraduate student at Virginia Tech, and she plans to graduate in December with a B.S. in Clinical Neuroscience and a minor in Chemistry. Outside of the lab, Lindsey is involved in many different organizations on campus, as well as works in some of the local emergency departments. In her free time, she enjoys running, spending time with her friends and reading. After graduation, Lindsey plans on taking a gap year before applying to medical school.


Lindsey has been a lab member for almost two years and her initial focus involved examining the current available clinical assessments used to assess tactile deficits at the arm in individuals who previously had a stroke. Lindsey is now also working with one of our PhD students, Emily Tirrell, on a project investigating the impact of arm handedness on detecting tactile stimuli.
