Grants and Research Projects

Neural mechanisms underlying control of multijoint arm movements in humans. We combine both psychophysical experiments and biomechanical simulations to determine the neural processes responsible for coordinating the complex mechanics of the musculoskeletal system. Studies in patients with neurological lesions are conducted to determine the contributions of specific neural structures to control.
