I don't know what you mean by motor neurone disease (peripheral, central, MD,
MS, etc.?), but as a Ph. D. student in neuroscience at Emory, I can tell you
that the Neurology dept. is extensively involved in motor control, and the
Anatomy/Physiology depts. of the University are doing some research into
peripheral motor/spinal motor systems. If they aren't specifically doing what
you are asking for, maybe they can point you in the right direction. Good
Luck, I hope you find what you need.
