Dr. Sarah Kraeutner (she/her) is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at UBC Okanagan, and a Michael Smith Health Research BC Scholar. She received her PhD in Psychology and Neuroscience at Dalhousie University in 2019 as a Killam Laureate.

Sarah is the lead investigator of the NIMBL (Neuroplasticity, Imagery, and Motor Behaviour Laboratory) at UBC Okanagan, with the overarching goal to improve motor learning and relearning after stroke. Using a multi-modal approach, encompassing neuroimaging, neurophysiology, and behavioural techniques, basic work focuses on understanding brain function and plasticity associated with motor learning through non-physical forms of practice. Applied work focuses on informing, developing, and testing interventions using these forms of practice to promote recovery after stroke.
